Little Puff Ball

This little puff ball finch was the only one of his flock not to fly away when I came outside with a camera. This one is a brave one...I bet he can teach those Tufted Titmouses a thing or two!

What a cutie! I get some real laughts every winter, getting all excited that I have something new in the tree, and when I grab the bins for a better look, its'just a sparrow or some other regular, only all fluffed and puffed against the cold, and looking twic e the size.

Shelly: What a neat shot of the bird.

He's gotten his feathers arranged just so, and if he flies he will just have to redo them.

Fishing guy - thank you!
