No, it's not Beethoven, nor even Mozart, but one that I hear this time of year in the yard. A few years ago, I was out working in the garden, and I heard the sound of a bird which amazed me. It was long, melodious, and pierced the air with a longing for love.
It's the house finch, and I caught a couple of pix of one in the wildflower field this afternoon. This particular wildflower that this house finch is on, has seeds that they love to eat, once the flowers start going to seed. I thought a couple of you might appreciate the beauty of this little guy, and if you haven't heard one sing, there's a link to Cornell's site that has some bird sounds you can listen to. It's amazing what a big voice this little bird has.
