I captured this finch on my bird feeder. Since we are completing our garden, the bird community seem to appreciate my bird garden and all breeds of bird come to feed and take a bath in the bird bath. And they chase each others between the flower. I can’t stop watching them. One of my best ways to replenish after a long day.
