A pair of female House Finches (Carpodacus mexicanus) sitting on the end of a branch of the Japanese Maple. They were eating the buds off the Maple!
A lovely female House Finch (Carpodacus mexicanus) sitting on a branch of the Rose of Sharon bush in the rain. I feel much better for the birds now the temperature is back above 0 and the ice is gone!
Another pair for today. This time a pair of Purple Finches (Carpodacus purpureus) sitting in a Rose of Sharon bush. The ice is finally gone from the trees in our yard and the temperature was above 0!!
Ice is the word today! After a night of freezing rain this American Goldfinch (Spinus tristis) seems a little put out by it all! Can’t say I blame him!

A male House Finch (Carpodacus mexicanus) keeping a close eye on the sky. We have had a Hawk dropping in recently so I think the little birds are cautious!
