  15. Nice shots of the finches.I've only seen one House Finch in our south Florida neighborhood since moving here 10 years ago. We lived in Dallas when they suddenly appeared in the 1980s. Since they had spread from both coasts across the entire continent, they converged in a line that roughly went through central Texas, so I could not tell whether they represented the east or west coast population. Saw many with eye disease in Illinois a couple of years ago.

Hello, Thanks for stopping by my blog. This is my blog about the birds I see, I hope you enjoy them as much as I do. They might not always be the best of photos because I like to keep photos as a record of where and when I see them.
I appreciate all your comments and I will always try to return the favor and visit your blog.

Due to some recent problems I will not be able to publish any comments that include a link. I would appreciate if you do not include any kind of links in your comments. Sorry!
Have a great day, Eileen
