Enda - thanks for your visit from across the Atlantic! Glad you like the post and thanks for adding a different flavor to my blog!

First of all the pictures are great and highly detailed. The green finch isn't a bird that we see in Ireland so was interesting to have a close up view. Personally I like birds that are a little bit cheeky and these seem to match that criteria.


I would say yes! I had one in my flock this winter and there is an overall lemony look to them. Mine even had a butterbutt. Here is a look at the one I had. http://behindthebins.wordpress.com/2009/03/01/odd-yellow-pine-siskin/ Of course the undertail would be the clincher. Great shots, BTW, my Siskins are long gone.

  • Our eyes and ears should be open and alert to the natural wonders that surround us every day. Take time to look out our windows to see the birds that visit us and open our windows to hear them. Walk around whatever space we have to enjoy the birds in nature. Every day, work on improving our powers of observation.


  • Nature happens. We cannot MAKE natural things happen (or NOT happen). We can create habitats to encourage natural things to happen around us, but there are no guarantees.


  • Birdfeeding comes with responsibilities to the birds and the environment we share with them. If you are unwilling to accept these responsibilities, you shouldn’t feed the birds. We also have a responsibility to share these natural wonders with the next generation.
