What a stunning view to see the Northern Cardinals every day at my feeders this week.
I've been scattering sunflower hearts on my deck for the Dark-eyed Juncos.
The Carolina Chickadee loves the black-oil sunflower seeds in the feeders. He is so cute, just grabs a seed and runs.
The Carolina Wren is eating nut and berry seed mix.
The house finches are visiting by the dozens.
Next are a male and female house finch at the feeder.
I'll share pics of the female house finch and the female purple finch so you can see the differences in identification. The female house finch in the top pic has no distinctive eyebrow. Now, check out the white eyebrow of the female purple finch in the bottom pic.
The eyebrow is the key for me in identification of the female purple finch. There is also a line extending backward from the lower base of the bill.
Here's a link to help with identification.
Look who is popping his head around the edge of the tree.
Thanks for stopping by to see who is at the feeders and in the trees - Judy.
