A Little bit of Color

Buttercups and daisies, / Oh the pretty flowers; / Coming ere the Springtime, / to tell of Sunny hours . 
~ Mary Howitt

 This handsome gentleman (male house finch) visits the pine trees in my yard.

He's lovely Kerri! The males are really starting to get into their breeding plumage now. Won't be long, we'll start hearing the chirping of new life. :c)

Just beautiful. We are expecting rain as well, which saddens me. But you are correct that it will bring forth the green grass and the lovely flowers! Theresa

Happy Thursday Kerri! I'm jealous of your warmer weather! That's a beautiful shot, I love how much the bird stands out against the background!

Mary said...

Aw, he's adorable, Kerri! They seem to be such gregarious little birds -- always gathering at the feeder in large numbers here...

And yes, hasn't the warmer weather been wonderful? Such a boost for the spirits!

You are so lucky having all those beautiful birds hanging around your house! Not too much of them here -too many cars and traffic and human noise (I would avoid that too if I could!).
This gentleman has beautiful colors!

He is indeed handsome! I have a male and female house finch that hang out in a Taxus baccata right outside my studio window; remarkable to watch then early in the morning and late at nigh.
