House finch, male

Fletcher Wildlife Garden

A few house finches came to the feeder, two females and one male, though could have been more that I didn't see. We don't see big numbers of these birds anymore in the region. About 20 years ago, they'd congregate in large flocks of 40 or more birds at the garden. As is true for the house sparrow which spent the winter in the cedar hedge near the baseball field, and came to the feeder daily. There could easily be 80 sparrows in the hedge back then, but they rapidly dwindled to none. Last house sparrow I saw at FWG was in 2009.
