Monday goodies: Finches

Why finches? Well, for one, I have tons of images of them. They're here every day, carpeting our yard, dancing in the air, bickering, chirping. They're fun.

For another, they're pretty cool birds. They started as residents of Mexico and the Southwestern United States, but have been introduced throughout the rest of the country over the years. They're common, sure, but they're adaptable. And feisty.

Have some finchy goodness. And happy Monday.

Love these! Their faces are so expressive. I also really like the silhouettes with the iridescent colors shining in the wings!

Thank you, Cindy! They're so common, but they really are photogenic birds, especially when that sweet evening light hits.
