Wondering what this guy did before he became a realtor?
I saw this little bird and his friends early today and thought he was sparrow or a maybe a female house finch. After closer study, and this picture is pretty poor, I am fairly sure he is a pine siskin, which means he is smaller, stripier, and has a smaller beak than his buddies the finch. When he and a gold finch were side by side, I was pretty sure my deductions were right. I know some people are not excited by birds, but I am! Winter often brings many unusual species our way and I love adding new ones to my list.
Today my new boots arrived! Hooray! I have wanted these for so long. When they went on sale for half price--zwoop! I had to have them.
