I think these finches are from England. I’m not sure why I believe this other than when I look at these birds I find myself speaking to them with an English accent. Simon and Lucy. Meet Simon and Lucy. They are distinguished. They are so beautiful and make their nest in a very slow and organized pace.
I don’t know which is which, who is who. But I can see in their tiny eyes how they love each other. The birding thing has been fascinating and not something I ever envisioned myself doing. Now I kick myself for not doing this fifty years ago. Okay, forty years ago.
I’m working on this project which is about the birds that live in the immediate area around my house. Spring is here and every day seems to bring a new mix to the party. I still don’t know much about birds but I’m learning. Add it to the daily mix of art, sketching, guitar, Spanish and now birding. A healthy list of things that still challenge me.
