A sure sign of spring in my neighborhood in central Illinois.

Several years ago, I bought a metal birdcage at a junk store, and hung it on our front porch is a decoration. The next spring and every spring thereafter house finches have used the birdcage for nesting at least once each spring. These are a couple of pictures I took today

That is awesome. I have a old motorcycle helmet in my pole barn that they use every year. I eat at the eggs and chicks every day to watch the progress.

@donto101, @frayedbear House Finches?

@PappyOnWings they are Finches what kind I cave no clue

@Donto101 House finches are about the size of a house sparrow, and look a lot like them except that the males have a red head

@PappyOnWings no redheads

@PappyOnWings I looked it up it is a house finch I was just mainly seeing the male that’s why I didn’t see the redhead. Lol

@PappyOnWings I once kept two zebra finches in a cage in the loinge. Their seed attracted mice and they eventually died from mosquito bites causing their feet to fall off of after decaying. After that I simply refused to ever cage a bird again.

Great idea. I hope that the door is welded open.

Posted by ZsterI live in a very hard clay soil area and routinely time my ground work around softening rains.

Posted by LorajayMany of my shrubs look like they may not make it after our 12 days of extreme freezing weather but my Chinese quince is prettier than it's ever been. Perhaps it would prefer a colder climate.
