    When I got home from work today my yard was hopping with birds and that hasn't happened in a long time. We are in the middle of the summer lull so I was happy to see this. I think this was two House Finch families that also raised some parasitic Cowbirds. I would guess there were around 15 to 20 of these in my yard today. I hope you enjoy!

    Just a liiiiiiitle bit bigger than the Finch. :tongue:

    These two were trying to get as big as their adopted Cowbird siblings. They were actually hearing a Blue Jay do a hawk impression.

    Where did you get those shoes? I've got to have some of those! :biggrin:

    This looks like a tired daddy House Finch.
