Thursday Birdblogging; dedicated to Alora
Thursday Birdblogging today is dedicated to Sarah Deere's granddaughter, Alora, who was taken from us on Tuesday. She was a lovely child, whose soul takes flight - and may these birds give her good company. The delicacy of the small crowned bird impresses me as what could be a child's delight. I wish her released soul much joy, and enjoyment
This little brilliant spark is called Cassin's Finch, and was a surprise outside the motel in Colorado Springs, in view of Pike's Peak. These pictures come from http://www.geocities.com/tgrey41/CassinsFinchM2.jpg, and someday I really have to get a working camera of my own, but with help like geocities, I probably am doing better to spare you my amateur efforts.
He's a Western bird, and I took a picture just when they decided they preferred the other side of the bush they were playing on. Here's the bush, anyway. A couple of females and one male Cassin's Finches are in there somewhere.
