The House Finch doesn't usually visit my neighborhood. I have a friend about two blocks away that gets them all the time. I think this one is part of the advanced guard to see if my feeder is worth expanding their territory.

You'll soon have lots more Jim. Once they stake out your box for feeding they will swarm it!!Happy shooting!

Looking forward to them Ed. As it stands now I have four Doves and at least 40 Sparrows that seem to live in my feeder.All the Sparrows are of the common variety but I know there are at least two more varieties here. Just not enough colorful birds out here in the Sand Dunes. So when something new arrives it is an event.

The bad thing here Jim is that when the finches take over the cardinals stay away!

A roadrunner or a Wiley Coyote will do just fine. We only have the dumb coyotes down here.

I'll try to get you folks a pic of a real New Mexico roadrunner this weekend. Advance apologies for pic quality... I usually shoot houses... not boids.

Couldn't find a roadrunner this weekend, but here's a little guy who was sunning himself on the roof of my company's truck not long ago. Roadrunners are fast and very alert, but they will often turn and look you right in the eye before taking off. And by the way... they prefer to hunt for lizards as opposed to eating Acme Birdseed.
