My short words

It was already past 9:00pm. But some visitor came to the mayday tree.

"Welcome to the tree!" I enjoyed the time with the bird and the tree. :)

  • House finches can see in a large area of north America from Mexico to Canada.[4]
  • Adult male House finches have a reddish head and neck.[1] Adult female House finches have no reddish color. Thus the bird on 'Photo 1' is male, and 'Photo 2' is female.
