Some weeks ago I asked Mr AVO to purchase some bird seed for our feeder that hasn't been used in a couple of years.
Now I try to sit on our patio every day for lunch and relax and read a bit and now I get to view the birds too.
I've taken more than 3 dozen photos of the feeder trying in vain to get the "perfect" shot. I wanted to show when 5 or 6 birds are holding on for dear life or when a bunch of huge pigeons scare away the smaller birds.....to no avail.
I've also noticed that almost all the smaller birds are of the same species....and they come to feed in pairs. There is a brownish gray bird and then the brightly colored red on the head and breast of the other bird, which I suppose is the male.
I hope you can see the bright red on the male bird, (you can click on the photos for a much larger view)....I really tried to get better photos than these but the birds alluded me.
Does anyone know what type of bird they are?.....I think I saw them pictured on someone's blog and they called them some type of a Finch....but can't remember where.
Thanks for stopping by.....I always appreciate your comments.
