|A Baby Only A Mother Would Love|
I have promised some photos of the baby house finches and this was the only one that was somewhat clear.
You have to look closely or zoom in, but you can see the birds beaks and eyes. You can also see that house finches aren't as neat as robins are. I've learned a lot about the differences between the two birds~robins stay with their young almost continually the first week or so and then fly back often to feed the babies while our momma finch leaves them for most of the day and only returns occasionally. I was worried about her not getting enough seeds, so I actually bought a "thistle sock"-a type of feeder that is fabric and is filled with Niger thistle which the bigger birds don't like. I can't tell if it has made a difference or not but I hope so. As cute as it has been to have them on our front porch, I'm thinking that I may just take that wreath down and clean it but not hang it back up due to the mess they are making. I do love wildlife but I'm not sure how much longer to expect them to stay.
I hope you had a lovely weekend and that this week dawns bright and beautiful my friends.
