Lately i've been putting the fids' leftovers in the front yard for the wild birds. Its made for some fun watching for me and Marley. We've seen lots of birds having a blast out there. I was struck by this guy's purty beak, any idea what he/she is?

I'd say a finch but what the heck do I know...Lorek is good with wild bird identification.
I am so glad that I started saving the left over pellets and seed....it's so much fun watching all the critters enjoying the left overs!  And learning or figuring out what some of the birds are.  I haven't spotted any new ones lately but it would be fun to see a new one come and get some grub.  I did see a Tit-mouse the other day...they are so cute!

Definitely a finch of some sort...not sure what type without seeing it's color patterns a little better. :) 

@Mar, we do that all the time! We have a container we dump the used food from the bowls in (Has lots of goodies for the wild birdies) then we toss it outside. They all seem to enjoy it :) Yesterday the mourning doves and cardinals were at it all day.

Ditty, do you get squirrels, chipmunks or blue jay's?  Ours seem to really love the pellets...along with the crows of course!

i was thinking some sort of finch, too. But a lady at work had dozens of birdy pics of the wild birds that hang out in her garden. She had several pics of a bird like this one and i asked her. This is a female Cardinal.

yep that is why i asked how big it was.  It could def. be a female card, the youngins don't have a big tuft on their head.

I DO have squirrels, chippys, Jays etc, no one will touch it.   dknow

she's the close to the same size as the male cardinal, and i knew i had a pair living in that tree, so it makes sense. I've just never gotten a good look at 'em together, so didnt really put it together.
