The finches have arrived!
Spring has sprung for us when our finch pair arrives. They have been coming to our back deck for two years now and we always have a bird feeder ready for them! When we sit outside, we can hear all of the birds living in my neighbor's yard as he has well established trees. Our scotch pines are now around ten feet tall and every year we get more and more birds. If you provide the habitat, the birds come to nest and raise their families in your yard. The more birds you have living in your yard, the less bugs you have. Not all bugs are annoying, mostly it's the mosquitos and horseflies that we'd like for the birds to eat. Of course we always have more bugs than we know what to do with. Welcome my beautiful little finches!
