Wednesday Wonders

House Finch Chicks
I would say these 2 little chicks are almost
ready to fledge. I was afraid that if I took the
plant down to water it they would
try to fly too early. But, they stayed hunkered
down and very quiet as I snapped a couple
pics and proceeded to water the plant. I hung the
plant back up and thought, "that'll be the
last time I see these 2 little guys." They are
so's amazing how they survived the heat.
This plant has hosted 2 H. Finch families and
will have successfully launched 5 chicks
this Spring/Summer.

Happy Wednesday Everyone!!

Sunset at the Arkansas River in Kansas

House Finch Chicks

They look a little gross here with their
craws stuffed full, but they've gotten
a little bigger. It amazes me how they
can survive the heat. We are having temps
over 100 degrees with no end in sight.

Happy Wednesday !!
