For the last several days, a male purple finch has been hanging around the feeders and bird bath. Purple finches are so attractive with their raspberry colored heads and sort of pink colored bellies. Of course, he really stands out among a crowd of chipping sparrows and goldfinches.
He does have his mate with him- she's pictured in the last photo on the far left. She's brown with a white belly which is heavily streaked. She blends in easily with the other small birds in a crowd. It's been fun watching the variety of winter birds that have visited our back yard.
Have a blessed Sunday!
