House Finch & Friend

This little House Finch was a first for me as he sat eating along with a sweet Chickadee on one of the feeders at the Vet's Centre at the Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre. House Finchs were introduced to eastern North America in the 1940s around New York City and have now spread with the first ones appearing in Ontario around 1978. They are now quite common here. Cute isn't he?

They are both cute! It must be warm in the Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre. I'm not sure if we have these birds down this way but I'd like that.

We have tons of house finches here but I prefer the bright yellow goldfinches. Both use the bird bath right outside my window and it is a joy to watch them.

I posted a finch that I think is a purple finch but it could be a house finch. I've got a goldfinch too.

He's very cute Pat, so is his wee eating companion! Together with that very pretty bird feeder you captured a lovely image here.
