Nice pic! I assume that temperature rading is in "Canadian" and not "American"
:-)

Nice! I've never seen one and would love to. Thanks for sharing this beauty.

kcinnova - yes, spring weather -- YESTERDAY! Today we woke up to snow!

Missicat - the big numbers on the thermometer are Fahrenheit.
And nowhere near that high today!

Geo - thanks!

Messymimi - He settled right in and ate a lot of sunflower seeds, so I'm guessing he was pretty happy.

Hilary - the first time I saw a purple finch, I had no idea what it was, but thought it was so pretty! That was many years ago, and sparked my interest in feeding birds so I could watch them.

I once had a finch and her name was
Half(finch).
