I wait eagerly for spring in the desert here in Tucson, Az. to see all the plants in bloom & gorgeous colors. I love the House Finches around my desert home & spend many hours & days trying to photograph them & other birds as they pollinate plants while foraging for their food. Hearing them sing makes me very happy. I reconstructed 2 nests that had been blown out of their locations & the Finches came back & used them & raised their babies. I was overjoyed & kept track of their growing babies.
