Rosy finches...

The birds are waking up here in Texas. They are noisy in the mornings and flocking to my feeder. I took the screen off of the window in front of my sewing machine today and raised the window so that I could take pictures of them.

The cardinals and Downy woodpeckers wouldn't sit still long enough for me to get a good shot. Maybe tomorrow.

These are rosy finches. Of course, it's the males who are "rosy". The females are quieter in color.
