  1. Green?


    They seem more yellow to me. But then, "red" in bird names usually also covers orange in modern color terms, because the word orange came into the English language later than most bird names. Kind of interesting how language "colors" our perceptions of color. Anyhooo .... here's a handsome...
  2. Green


    Having spent most of the summer season out of town, I missed seeing the Dippers and Yellow Wags at Ilabekken. So on Aug 24 I thought I'd trek over there just in case some were still in the area. They weren't. But I did see this rather pretty Greenfinch drinking by the pond at the bottom of the park.

    Time to get goin'!

    Greenfinches in my back yard had me distracted for a bit as I got ready to hike to Leangenbukta in hopes of seeing waders.

    Guess who came for dinner - 2

    Waxwings and Fieldfares aren't the only ones who come for the wee apple berries. The Greenfinches eat them too. Mostly they eat the nubbins the bigger birds leave on the fruit stems, but occasionally they try a whole berry. The berries are just a tad too big for them to swallow whole, so they...

    SF3 - Who says we don't mind the weather?

    It may not make me blue, but it sure makes me grumpy. And that feeder is almost empty again, just so you know! Sorry I'm not caught up browsing. I'm using this rainy day to catch up on an embroidery project, but I need breaks from the tiny stitches now and then. I'll catch up on browsing this...

    "Noisy brats!"

    "What were their parents thinking, letting them swim on their own with no lifeguard on duty, and splashing about so an adult can't drink in peace!"

    Hey! That's OUR feeder!

    Greenfinch with raised crest, watching the Tree Sparrow at the feeder. Not looking grumpy for once, however.

    OK, I guess they really are green

    Sorta. Some of them, at least. Although mostly I think of them as yellow. (formerly Carduelis chloris)
  15. SF - What?

    SF - What?

    Just because we're *drinking* under the table, doesn't mean we've drunk ourselves under the table! Greenfinches and Redpoll drinking and bathing in a puddle under a picnic table. Wasn't much light under there, and I wasn't quick enough to shift the exposure from what I'd had for the bathing Blue...

  17. Not all that green, are they?

    Not all that green, are they?

    Yellowfinch? Brownfinch? Brassfinch? Bronzefinch? I really don't see where the "green" name comes from. Pretty birds, though. And they have some lovely, delicate songs that go almost unnoticed ... until the descending screech finale.

    Here is one of my images taken this week of a beautiful greenfinch as my local nature spot. Very colour little bird in it's natural habitat.
