I'm trying to decide if this is a Cassin's Finch or a Purple Finch. I thought it might be an ordinary House Finch, but I think the red colors are spread more through the wings and body than they are for the House Finch. Either way, my eye caught sight of him from the window as I was paying the bills today. What a treat for my eyes and my spirit.
Mr. Finch has a friend in the basket with him nibbling on sunflower seeds. This fellow is a junco.
I made a little time for embroidery today since I have given up on my crochet-edged pillowcases. Rather than cry, I decided to stop and move on to something I love, hence, the embroidered caterpillar and Swallowtail.
