See how full the finch in the photo above has filled his mouth!!!

Thank you , Ruth. We enjoy it daily with its changing species. It is a joyful activity looking out our windows during the changing seasons.

I had always wondered about bird alley Ann. What a beautiful and relaxing place to watch your friends. I certainly can see why they all flock to eat there.
I love Purple Finches, but we only get them mostly in winter.
