Some days my life is all finched up

Today was one of them earlier. But I did finally get the lawn mowed, and Scar came back home, so things are back to normal. Whatever that means. And a little bit ago, I had a visit from three finches...a female house finch top left, and male house finch top right, and a goldfinch on the bottom. I haven't seen the goldfinches much lately, this time of year they don't come to the feeder often, although I get house finches daily. So of course I had to snap a photo. Before things get any more finched up than they have already been today.

@BarBaraPrz And then when he breaks the lead and tangles it in brush he'll be stuck and unable to get free, so no...

The poor female is sitting there, thinking, “someone stole all my color.” (Usually the males have better and brighter colors, right?)

@myklj999 — wouldn’t it be a hoot if the females were color blind?

The gold finches are not around right now, may be it's too hot here. Did Scar come back home?

I told you Scar returning was the start of three good things. You've got a great photo here.
