Home for a House Finch

Some years, the house finches build their nests on the nesting platforms on the eaves of the porch. This year, only the mourning doves nest there, and the house finches have nested in other yards.

But they still view our garden as their nursery, and so once the fledglings leave the nest, as the first ones did a few weeks ago, the males and young ones spend their days in the garden, singing and feasting!

Few things make me feel more at home than a house finch’s song!
