What a treat when looking out at Bird Alley this morning to see a bit of colour rather than the usual Goldfinch grayish winter brown. A rosy male Purple Finchwas feeding on the ground with the Goldfinch. Its been a long time, Buddy Bird, Welcome!
Feeling a bit optimistic after seeing the purple finch I collected my car keys and headed out the door to my favourite open water area. In a field adjacent to the water I saw several Canada geese feeding there. Wow, no matter how many times I see them I find them exciting and beautiful to look at. What do you think? It was a small grouping. There were only about 8-10 of them there.
I think this weekend might prove to be rather visually delightful. I hope so. Now for a Robin and a Common Grackle. My Grackle sighting is overdue!... maybe today?
