I noticed that we have some bird lovers among us and a lot of you commented on the finches in my family video. I don't think I've told you, we have an aviary outside. It's awesome. We have finches and they make the cutest sounds--unlike them free parrots. As a bonus, many wild birds come to eat the bird seed that falls outside the cage and that keeps me and my sisters entertained. We do a lot of bird chasing in our own back yard.
This is a nest in our front yard. It's occupied every spring. Early reservation recommended.
To the back yard now and the aviary
Mama and Papa, both finches guarding their nest
Baby finches, you can see the food in their gullets--the small sacs full of seed.
Same nest, different angle.
This is Junior, one of them, but we can't keep track so they're all named the same.
Junior stuck on floor of aviary. Uh-oh.
Don't worry, the parents are great flight instructors.
Another mama stands guard.
Aren't they adorable?
I sure hope at least my kat-furiends enjoyed today's post about our finches. Happy hunting!
But before you go...
Not for Mango's EyesMy beloved furiend, Frankie Furter, the long haired doxie, is not just a really fun, funny, and good furiend, he's a thoughtful and considerate dude. He's putting together a massive THANK YOU to show our appreciation for Mango's amazing and involved work during Mango Minster 2010. THIS is my furiend's link where you can get the details in his own words.
