As I open the back door to my deck, I saw this male house finch with his mate. He is content just to watch after her as she prances this way and that way. I couldn’t take a photo of her, but he stands still for me to snap a few. I am happy to see him, but I don’t have anything to offer them. Putting up bird feeders is not allow as they will bring on mice to the complex. Oh well, I just have to learn to settle with what I can do or have.
