Here's how is all went down: I stopped by a familiar feeder this afternoon (on my second trip out today!) and found numerous juncos, goldfinch and a chickadee. While looking through my "new" binoculars, I spotted a bird with streaks. I looked and looked but couldn't get a full-body image.
So how is it when I am 24 months into this sport, that I can't ID a Purple Finch with ease. I have certainly seen enough of them in my yard. It was the chase that got me. I saw something that looked unusual and I couldn't rest until I put a name on it ..... Funny Finch.
