Collinsville yard: the finches were up early, skittish, and gone by 8:30 before the resident sharpie arrived --- but they included:
2 pine siskins
4 American goldfinches
2 purple finches
1 house finch
1 redpoll (looked hoary -- very light -- but I'm not confident of that id)
1 pine grosbeak (female). That's the third time I've had a pine grosbeak, but they are definitely not "regulars". Very little fruit left on the trees/vines here.
plus the usual assortment of:
white breasted nuthatches
If you want to build a ship, don't herd people together to collect wood and don't assign them
tasks and work but rather, teach them to long for the endless immensity of the sea."
