Nature Walks – The Love Birds

Spring is definitely in the air. All the birds are pairing up, singing their love songs and making their nests. The buds are beginning to pop up, and the grass is beginning to green up once again. I have my camera always at the ready, just in case. Today was a fantastic day for photos. I saw so much beauty today and all kinds of wildlife.

Today, as I was out walking, I got lucky and got some great shots of a pair of Cassin’s Finches together. The male is gorgeous in his red attire. I just never know what I’m going to see.

First I saw the male, and I was very happy with seeing him.

Then I saw the female.

And then, I saw them together. This completely made my day. They were very photogenic. I am thinking there are going to be a few eggs before to long. I almost felt like a voyeur.

A few days ago we had snow and it was winter. Today, it is once again warm weather and I am in shorts. Only in Colorado do we have such extreme weather changes. I just love our Springs.
