Purple Finch - Antioch yard - 10/18

Paul Schorr

This morning Nancy and I watched a female Purple Finch come to the feeder and to the bird bath. While it was at the bird bath, a Hermit Thrush appeared at the base of the bird bath. In addition, we had a Dark-eyed Junco join the crowned sparrows, and we are starting to see many American Goldfinches at the feeders.

For the past couple of weeks, we have seen numerous Gulf Fritillary butterflies coming to the flowers in the yard, especially the milkweeds.

Happy birding, stay well and be safe.
