Purple Finch (male)
Originally uploaded by lizalee.

The sun is peeking out through the clouds today giving us hope that tomorrow’s storm won’t be as bad as the weatherman keeps saying. Meanwhile, I had 20 Chestnut-backed Chickadees at my front yard feeders this morning and a lovely pair of Purple Finches. I used to think my finches were House Finches but then I got a good look at the females and they have the tell-tale white stripe over their eyes so Purple Finches they are. Lovely, huh? Do you think he knows how good he looks with those almost Weeping Cherry buds next to him?

There are more pics at Flickr for the interested.
