Finally got a shot of the House finch
As you may already know, I’ve been spending inordinate amounts of time at the computer where I also watch the birds out my window.
I’m used to seeing lots of sparrows and finches, plus the cardinals flit in and out, male, female, male, female. Taking turns.
The other day I saw what looked like an immature male cardinal. Yet when I looked at the photos on the computer am now wondering if it’s not a Pyrrhuloxia, which I’ve never seen here before. Maybe a better birder than I can confirm. If it’s the later, it’s a lifer! And how do you pronounce that word?
I haven’t seen hardly any javelina around this winter until just recently during the cold snap and since. They snuffle up bird seed and tip the water bowl.
This might be “Dolly” who mostly travels solo. Javelina usually travel in herds.
