There are usually 12-15 finches around
The purple colour doesn't show up very well, but the bird on the left looks
like it has been dunked in raspberry juice. It's a purple finch. The female
looks more like a sparrow. The young goldfinch on the right is ok with the company.
A bit blurry, but I had to add another feeder to accommodate the numbers
And of course, little Chippy.
The hummingbirds are still here, though it won't be too long before they start heading south, perhaps they'll stay another week if I'm lucky. I will miss them.
It will soon be time to start up Fall programs at the church, so I have been going through music, to get ready for choir. It will be interesting to say the least, doing this on my own. Hope all goes well.
I have an assistant who will play when I have to be away. That's a good thing, since I have an operation on my eye coming up. Darned cataract...........!
