Red Finch In My Yard

I was talking with AT of Dubai yesterday, when I told her about the birds that would come chirping in my backyard, making sure I am up early even on weekends (my bedroom window overlooks the backyard). She wanted to know the kinds of birds- I told her about the pigeons, sparrows and blackbirds and occasionally the shy Finches that would show up….

Right on cue, here is what awaited me this morning….

Notice how she sits apart from the rest, cautious and shy and curious all at once…..within few seconds she decided to swoop down have a few pecks and fly away. I couldn’t capture her swooping down or flying away she was way too agile for me…
