    Surprise AZ

    My poolside visitors & then some...
  2. I have those House Finches out here in AZ as well - usually trying to figure out how to access the nectar in my Hummer feeders. The males certainly are especially colorful with that bright purple-ish red from their heads thru their chests! Though pretty common, I find them quite amusing, happy little birds that 'play' in the bushes... I have also found that they can be quite susceptible to outdoor chemicals, maybe heavily used pesticides, weed killers, etc. (at least out here).
