courtship of finches


high in the cottonwood

high in the cottonwood

sings a little boy bird

he's really hamming it up

he's really hamming it up

and looking kinda pretty for the girlo birds that fly by

little bright red male finch

little bright red male finch

he's eyeballin' me now

he's eyeballin' me now

“what is she doing down there?  could she be interested because of my beautiful songs and bright red/orange feather?” wonders the beautiful boy bird.

he's smitten

he's smitten

“oh this one looks just right for me”, sighs the male house finch.

and they lived happily in a little nest under the eaves…….

THE END

    Very nice captured, I could never get this close to them, even when they built their nest on top of my front porch pillar.

    Your house finch is so red! And little white on his belly. It’s so cool to see the variation of domestic birds in other parts of the country! I’m enjoying your site of beautiful pictures and paintings as well 🙂
