A - Z Challenge F : Finches

Finches are my favorite birds. I don't know why but I fell in love with these little beauties when I was a child. Maybe because they are small compared to most birds you find in the back yard. That I could relate to growing up. Out of 2 brothers and 5 sisters. I still remain the shortest.

Finches are found throughout the Northern Hemisphere. Finches come in many different colors and patterns.They are song birds who love to eat seeds.

Small, black oil sunflower seeds tend to attract them to your backyard. Sometimes in flocks of up to 50 at a time. It is best to have several feeders if you plan to attract Finches in your backyard. Or low lying bushes where they will hide and feed.

Do you like birds? What is your favorite kind?

  1. Cardinals of course. And wrens, bluebirds, herons, swans, eagles, and a particular China goose in a park in Maryland. But I think my real favorites are chickens.
