  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...

    Swing time

    There seemed to be a bit of "push, pull" going on with this feeder, as it was swinging around a bit. Not sure if the House Sparrow knew the Greenfinch was on the other side LOL Saturday Fun

    Common garden varieties 6 - last but no longer least

    Greenfinch numbers were waaaay down a few years ago, after a late Spring frost withered the just-pollinated blueberry blossoms. Blueberries, and freeze-dried overripe blueberry "raisins" left hanging on the shrubs, are apparently an important winter forage source for seed-eating birds here...
  10. 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.

    Birds in foliage 3

    We did see some birds in the treetops, but not so many good views of them right by the tower. This apple tree, where a Greenfinch posed briefly, was on the far side of the field beyond the bramble hedge. But then .... ah, well, you'll have to wait until the next time I post to hear and see the...

    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...
