Our Mexican sage plants are beautiful. The purple of the blossoms is incomparable. Often different birds visit the large sage in the front garden to find a seed or two to eat.

This pair stayed for the longest time, picking over the blossoms for whatever they might find. Indeed, one of the extras one has come into your life when you garden is a visit to a plant by a beautiful bird.

Photo Description
The first picture with the orange colored bird and the other, are called a house finches, and the "orange'ish" male is feeding the female, which at first I thought how cute it was to see a mommy bird feeding her baby.

Then I got confused, because the orange'ish bird is a male, as the females are usually un-colorful, and plain.

So I went researching to see which male birds feed their young, and found out this isn't a male or mother bird feeding the baby at all, it's actually the male feeding a female bird, and they do this in their courtship.

The male house finch apparently thought this was the best place in the neighborhood to take her on a dinner date. hehe

The second photo is of what we call the *seed log*. That's what it looks like when it's first put outside for them to eat.

It's an empty paper towel roll, supported with a smaller roll inside it, (so it doesn't collapse) when they pick and scrape off the peanut butter, seeds, and nuts. They seriously go wild over this.

The third picture is a female practically on her tippy-toes, not realizing she can hop right up to the next level *onto the scaffold* as my husband calls it, since we took another hanger and bent it around the seed log for level two so they reach the rest of the seeds.

The last picture, it looks like he's now asking me to redo the seed log with goodies, as they've picked and scraped it clean! Gosh, they love it.

With his beak full, Mr. House Finch turns to say 'Thank you'. I'll accept the garbled message. It's just what I wanted to hear.

This year, a pair of house finches have "set up housekeeping" in one of our front yard garden hanging baskets with geraniums. There are 5 eggs and they will hatch in about 2 weeks.
