I stepped outside today and heard the song of a house finch overhead. Truth be known it was not that melodious, he sang like a one-note Ned continuously and persistently.
But it was enough to attract a female nearby and she followed him.
While the courtship continued a visitor swooped in like a troublesome little brother, darting about in a blur, the little hummer trying his best to disturb the finch couple or perhaps just having fun.
Either way, they were undaunted.
