Garden Tuesday–House Finches

House finch

After the tornadoes on April 27th, we have only seen one gold finch at our bird feeder.

Before the tornadoes, we would usually have a swarm of gold finches at our feeder.  It was impossible to tell how many they had, it was a constant revolving door of finches.

I believe I heard these house finches say, “Gold finches, shmold finches.  What are we, chopped liver?”

 

Edited****I've been told my link is not working. I am away from my computer, I'll try to get it fixed tonight!!!

I've been having trouble with linky tools this morning... it appears I uploaded a recipe by mistake, instead of the post 'around the yard'. I've uploaded that too - sorry for the error!

my grandmother would tell us they look like they've been dipped in raspberry jelly so that we could tell what bird it was. Great photos!

I used to have a ton of finches, but they don't seem to like where I moved their feeders. I loved watching them!! :(

I'm pretty sure I've never seen an up close and personal finch! Until now...

Well, there you go. I had trouble linking up and suddenly I've got two of the same linked up. If you can delete one of them, please do. I'm afraid to touch it now! ;-)

I think I know where all your Goldfinches went... We have way more this year than ever before!
