More bird watching...

Here's a couple little finches that were sitting in my apple tree waiting for breakfast this morning...they are so funny! They know when I'm coming out and wait around to get fed.
These are both males...the females are all brown. The finches in my yard range from a light orange to a deep red on their heads and chests. They are very funny birds...they prefer to eat off the ground and a couple go onto the feeder and knock all the food onto the ground...I don't know why I just don't fore go the feeder and just sprinkle it on the ground!
This is an interesting time in the yard watching birds...we get a lot of birds migrating through either going to Mexico for the winter or staying here for winter. I look forward to the wood peckers...they will start showing up soon!
Enjoy the day, my friends!!

They are messy little guys! I love them too. I love all the birds. A true bird nerd, I am!

Most of our birds seem to have left....probably during that real cold spell we had last month. I miss them at our feeder.

How beautiful! We see no bird in our neck of the woods right now..just snow!

I just love those Purple Finches! We have lots of them here in Ohio, but mine like to eat from the bird feeders! They really are so much fun to watch! I hand raised four of them once...they were so sweet!

XOXO,
