What's there to say

...when there's so much singing going on outside?


This little guy was singing in the willow by my office window, so I cranked it open and took a few pics. Mostly I just listened. Noted the balance.

Nice bird! It looks like a girl--mostly because of the colour. I've never seen a red/pink bird before!

It sure is! It's a male purple finch. A lovely songster.

Brenda Schmidt said...

And yay he's still singing!

I wish I could just click "Like" because that's all I want to say, but I also like how the guide describes the colour as "dipped in raspberry juice." Wonderful! Two flickers today--oh how i love Spring

Brenda Schmidt said...

I love flickers! And yes, spring rules!

You rule, Brenda. I love your blog. Thanks for the bird and the observations and the wit and the photos...

Brenda Schmidt said...

Thanks, LNG! You just made my day!

what a beauty! have never seen such a bird either - and to have it in your own backyard! too cool.

It is cool. And this is one of the birds that I've been assigned to write a species account on for an upcoming book which I'll say more about when it goes into production.
