Balmy Fifty Degrees

This pair of House Finches took advantage of the mid-fifty degree weather yesterday afternoon to do a little sun bathing. The ice has now melted in the bird bath and they were acting like they thought they were on a beach in Florida. The male seems to be trying to strike his best pose showing off his brightest breeding colors. The female seems to be intent in checking her reflection in the water, perhaps to check her hair or make-up. Spring must be right around the corner.

    Have to love recliner birding, yes?

    1. Yes, Larry it's the best. Breaks my concentration though when I have to get up to get coffee or go potty.

  2. Love the picture. Have never had these in my yard - beautiful.

  3. Shall we start shopping for an adult size potty chair? Thank goodness the birdbath thawed, since we have your birdbath climate control specialist with us!
