courtship of finches

May 27, 2009
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
