Somehow I always end up with office windows more than the average few feet from ground level. Makes placing a feeder difficult at best, but where there is a will, there is a way.
Enter the shower caddy 🙂 Best thing I can find until I can get a 4×4 in the ground.
I haven’t been able to catch the females with the camera yet but the males are plentiful. These colorful little finches started hanging out at my window feeder a week or so ago.
This fella is pretty sharp and shapely looking and doesn’t mind a shot or two.
Others are a little scruffier looking and not as brave. Ole Sneaky Pete- he sneaks up on the side waiting to see if I will look.
He peeps around and tries to see through the glass which I am sure is casting much of his own reflection.
The House Finch is plentiful from coast to coast and fills it’s habitat with a lovely song. They love the sunflower seeds available to them daily.
Read more interesting details about the House Finch and listen to their song at the Audubon Field Guide.
