We've been feeding the birds again this summer. It's good to have them in the yard. It makes the place more lively and interesting.
Among our guests we have house finches like this fellow.
I love their splashes of colour, both alone and how it complements their cousins the goldfinches at the feeder.
This fellow frequents the feeder, the fences, and some of the trees around our house.
I am grateful for his visits in general, and I am very happy for the 20 or so mintues he spent sunning himself in the crabapple tree one evening as it gave me time to take plenty of photos.
These two are my favourites
