Another absolute gorgeous day here in the desert. We were delighted to have a male and female lesser Goldfinch for quite awhile. Hoping to have new visitors with all this warm weather--

Thanks for the update, Beth.  I hope he finds a good mate.  I still think about the one who died last year.

Judith...the male loves sitting on the nest but they have not laid any eggs yet.....he keeps bringing in more and more sticks and can't seem to get happy with the way the nest looks...he had three females at one time hanging around and they think he has finally settled on eagle#3...however he has mated with three different females which they ay is very, very unusual.  He started bulding the nest with a female but she is not hte one he seems to be with now.  This is the male that has been in the garden since 2004 and the mate of the female that died of the airplane strike last year...keep watching and we'll see when they lay eggs.

I looked at the eagles this morning, Beth.  I guess they have laid eggs, right?  Such a handsome couple.

Randy, such good pictures.  Maybe that finch fell into some bleach.

This was a first for me Beth. It does look like something a hairdresser might do. In fact I think I saw that particular shade.

Randy I think the hairdresser did a bad dye job on your finch!!  Gorgeous red head.....

He was like your Hawk this morning waiting outside the window for his picture to be taken, Thanks Paulette.
