On a Sunny Day

On a sunny wintry day the crab apple is casting shadows across the snow.
The transparent butterflies on the glass panel is seen as a blue colour by birds so they won't fly into it.
The safflower feeder is busy with male and female house finches.
And the niger seed tube is the place to be for goldfinches.
Here's a couple that decided to sit on the neighbour's window ledge across from my kitchen window. They were there for a good hour or so, likely soaking up the warmth from the bricks.

  3. Pretty little birds. The Goldfinch is the Washington State Bird but we rarely see more than one or two at a time at the feeders - weird. You'd think there would be a lot more around.

  12. I'm seeing a lot of posts on sunshine! I guess we've been longing for it all across the continent. Today we have some with milder temperatures. No snow of course and this sun may bring the daffodils into bloom ( a little early) ...

  17. Gorgeous images of the birds in your garden.
    It looks like your garden is one of their favourite cafe stops for beautiful food and a chat!

  18. What a fine friend of finches you are!

    I may have to try that on the basement sliding door. It doesn't happen often, but sometimes a bird flies into it.
