For Outdoor Wednesday I wanted to show some more of my photos of the Evening Grosbeak Finches that have started visiting my feeder.
Visit Susan at A Southern DayDreamer to see more of the Outdoors across the country and beyond.
There was a lot of activity at my Apple Tree yesterday. I was delighted to see these Finches come and visit. They are a bit greedy at the feeder. There was a lot of flapping of wings and pecking going on to get the good advantage on the feeder.
Some waited patiently for their turn a safe distance away.
Most of the photos were taken from my kitchen window and a few were taken from my deck trying not to scare them off.
I was happy to see the female bird have a turn.

Photobucket replaced all my photos with ugly black and grey boxes and they are holding my photos hostage until I pay them lots of money. I’m slowly going through all my posts and trying to clean them up and replacing some photos. Such a bother.
