crazy finch

For 4 days now, this finch had been bugging me. Usually the only time birds fly into the glass is when the hummingbirds are fighting and one of them gets slammed into a window. But this crazy bird has been flying and pecking against the office window. Then it flies against the glass over the front door before retreating into the clematis for a while before returning to flutter against the glass again.

This morning when I heard the tapping sound, I went to investigate. There he was, fluttering against the glass. Suddenly he changed his mind and tried to fly away but not before I saw the flash of another bird swooping in quickly.

As annoying as he was, I hope he got away..

Great shot! My husband calls our bird feeders the McDonalds drive through for the hawk which occasionaly swoops down for an order of bird nuggets.

Wow, that's kind of cool! What a great shot.

Maybe he thinks his reflection is a rival finch.

It's amazing how yellow he is.

RE: crazy finch

Great picture.

I love to watch the Goldfinch on our many feeders. They do keep us entertained.
