Watching for migrating birds in the spring (and fall!) is such fun. In my last post I featured the first returnee to the holler, a pine warbler. This morning another migrator flew in: a male purple finch! He is the first of his kind that I've seen in the holler since I moved here, though I used to see purple, house and Cassin's finches quite often when I lived in Colorado. Such a pleasant surprise to see one again.
