Photo Finish Friday -- A Guest at the Feeder

Yesterday we were treated to a visit from a Gray-Crowned Rosy Finch.
He, or she, went to the water dish first. It was frozen over, but our guest pecked valiantly at the ice.


As we watched I noticed it was eating, not trying to get a drink. It was cleaning up the fallen sunflower seeds from the feeder above.

It went away for a bit, but then came back and went to the feeder. It stayed and ate, and ate, and ate. Then it flew away.

After a while it came back and ate. It did this repeatedly throughout the day. It was a calm bird, or perhaps just very hungry, as it didn't flinch when photographed.

These birds are commonly found in the mountains. I'd seen one years ago near the top of a mountain in Jasper on the Cavell Meadows hike.
I didn't expect to see one at the kitchen feeder, but I am tickled that it happened.




Go on. Click to enlarge me. I want you to.

Wonderful pictures, cousin! Doesn't surprise me in the least that he would choose your feeder!!

Leah J. Utas said...

Why thank you, df Bag Lady. He's back today. I guess he wants to make sure he's properly fuelled for the trip.

Reb said...

What a beauty! Maybe this little cold snap made him decide to stay in the lowlands for a bit longer!

Lovely photos.

Missicat said...

Cute little bird! Glad he got his fill.

Leah J. Utas said...

Thanks, Reb. He and his mate are here today. You're probably right about their reasons.
Missicat, we aim to please our feathered customers.

Lover of Life said...

What a sweet little bird. I'm after my husband tomorrow to hang our new feeder! Thanks for the inspiration.

Dawn said...

What a lovely idea for winter. I'm sure the little fellow appreciated it.

Thomma Lyn said...

Oh wow, what a beautiful bird! And you got wonderful pictures of him/her. And I just read the comment that he/she is back with a mate. How wonderful that this sweet feathered couple picked your feeder as their Restaurant of Choice! :)

Hilary said...

Really nice shots, Leah. That's a lovely looking little critter. Then again, they all are.

Leah J. Utas said...

Hello Lover of Life. We're thrilled this lovely couple is hanging around. What kinds of birds do you get at your feeder?

Dawn, we can tell how much the birds appreciated it by how much they stuff their beaks. These two came by often. I think they only left to find a perch to nap while some of the food wore off.

Thomma Lyn, thank you. We're tickled they're here for a visit. We never thought we'd see mountain top birds at our feeders.

Thanks, Hilary. It's a pleasure to take bird pics. Most of them are so busy eating they don't care.
