Photo Friday – My Finch Friend

This fellow, and his wife oftentimes, light on the rail of my upper deck and greet the morning. What a joy to wake to the sound of their serenade!

A couple of days ago I opened the screen door and waited quietly for them to appear so I could snap a few photos.


Here is a sample of the song of the house finch. Is it any wonder that I welcome their presence?!

Happy Friday! I hope all has been well with your week. What weekend plans are on the horizon for you?

    Nice photo and bird sounds tvia a link that I was unfamiliar with. When I open the window in my study my bird sounds are mostly robins and mockingbirds.

    Weekend plans? Blueberry picking with the grands + a possible visit with one of my blog friends who just happens to be passing through town on her way down-state. I’m counting my blessings!

    Dear Linda, thanks so much for directing us to the finch songs. I listened to all three. I’ve never been a bird watcher, nor have I really listened to bird songs. Now I can see that I’ve been missing because the three songs I heard differed from one another. I’d best begin to listen!

    I hope your weekend will be all you long for it to be. Peace.

    Thanks for the cheery notes of birdsong. We love to watch our house finches. We have turtle doves in our new home, Jays, and Scissor tail flycatchers that we didn’t have in Kansas, but so far I’ve not been able to attract those lovely orioles.
