Steph, you are more than welcome; sorry I didn't think of it.

I just love the Pileated Woodpecker Joan. Really happy when I spot them. I appreciate you posting your bird picture here - thank you!

"The prescence of the pileated woodpecker

overwhelms all else in my eyes.
He is the alpha bird I see,
a young male, whose ululating cry
rings out without an open beak.
How intense his eye, how pupil wide.
How profound his drumming spear
that names his realm
and hollows out my yearning ear."
~ John Caddy

I saw your question about bird seed. I get mine from Wild Birds Unlimited - do you have a store near you?

Wow Sentient - what beautiful pictures! Trying to play catch up.

They do look like House Finches - let me look at my Sibley Bird guide to make sure of the species.

Comment by Joan Denoo on October 16, 2012 at 6:10pm

Sentient, these are so beautiful! And in your own back yard. Jeez, I am full of envy! I love my sparrows and chickadees and crows and an occasional woodpecker. But these are just stellar! Just look at those pretty colors and shapes. Very nice.

Outside my window.  I'm no expert.  From the web these look like housefinches.  They love the nyger seed feeder.

This pic is via a little point and shoot camera, through a window that's not all that clean.  I have a hanging plant in the window so they don't fly into the glass.
