Finch in the Thistles

Richard was able to get a nice photo of the purple finch who has been frequenting the thistle feeder in the yard. We noticed him first on Monday morning. For the most part, the birds we've seen in the yard are the regular woodsy kind of birds... chickadees, juncos, phoebes, crows, nuthatches, robins etc. It's a real treat to get a new bird come to call. We have a lot of different habitats throughout the property, and as we get more settled we'll be doing more bird watching to see which ones are more suited to one area or another.

The ferns are growing in the Pacific Northwest, the sprouts called "fiddleheads". Its lovely. A spring tradition here.
