Purple Finch for World Bird Wednesday

Hiw refreshing it was to look out my window this mornin to see a bird species that we hadn't seen for a long while. I had to stop and think! "What is it?" Then the name and gender popped into my head, "s female purple finch. how delightful!
The female finchappeared to be quite interested in the thistle stalk that it had landed on. And she took a couple of bites from it. "yummy ", she declared!
And in answer to my mental query. "We have a her, Now what about a him?"
And in no time there he was!!! I do hope they return tomorrow!No thistles for him. The finch food on the ground appealed to him.
