Finches and Cardinals and Quail, Oh My!

I'm sitting here at the computer and as I glance out the window, it's hard to pay attention to the monitor. Jean bought us a Gold Finch "Thistle Sock" and within a few minutes of hanging it in the tree, we've been inundated with Finches. (thanks Jean, now we've got more mouths to feed)! We enjoy putting seed and nectar out for the birds, they're so entertaining to watch. Last Spring, we had a Cardinal family who raised their young at our seed block....hmmm....makes me wonder if the Cardinal kids will grow up thinking all food comes in block form? Here are some pictures of of our critter visitors.
