Purple Finch

Purple Finch
photo101 day sixteen – treasure + close-up. Bird-watching is like a treasure to me. I love watching them and photographing them. Here is a close up photo of a purple finch. Once, purple finches built nests year after year in a tumbleweed that I had hung on my porch. That was delightful to have this family of birds so close by. I have no pictures of them, but many purple finch come now to the feeder in my yard.

Redbird & Purple Finch

This poem is a Jaleen. Pattern: 6-4-4-6-6-4-4-6, rhymed a-b-b-c-a-d-d-c.


The finch and redbird, too,
stop by to feed
on flower seed
when wintertime is here.
They brighten morning’s view,
their voices trill
from windowsill
and fill my heart with cheer.
