I love bird watching and am grateful for the effort my husband puts in to keeping the bird feeders full. All of our bird feeders can be seen from the kitchen window over the sink so we can bird watch at all times of year. We even keep a pair of inexpensive binoculars in the window sill!
Today's set of cards are inspired by the little tweeters that frequent our feeders. We commonly see American gold finches, house finches and pine siskins (pics of each below).

|Pine siskin. From a distance they look a lot like American gold finches. The striped pattern on their breast easily distinguishes them from gold finches. (Photo birdforum.net)|
