Saturday Critters ~ 241 ~

- let's hear it for the girls -

Last week I shared the boys, this week it is the girls turn.

First up, the Female Goldfinch






Next, the Female Downey Woodpecker





And last, the often overlooked Female House Finch



Even though they are not as pretty as the boys, 
there is something very sweet and special about my girls!

  2. Hello, your girls are just lovely! My favourite shot is the third one of the Woodpecker.
    She has pretty feathers. Amazing how many types of woodpeckers exist!
    Thanks for sharing.

  7. These are gorgeous! Fantastic perches, too! I think the muted colors of the females are just as pretty as the brightly colored boys.

  15. They are beautiful, I haven't seen the yellow finches with blue on them. When it got so hot here I haven't put out the suet and all my woodpeckers left, I am so bummed. Hope your enjoying a nice weekend!

  16. I think birds are the only species of living things where the males are prettier than the females. I wonder why?

  17. There is something special about your sweet little female birds. The photos area outstanding. I loved them all but espcially the female Goldfinch. I think the female House Finch is rather unique too. I actually enjoyed all the pictures. You are awesome!
    Blessings and hugs!

  20. Love these pictures! Honestly, I could sit and look at a book of your bird pictures for hours! the pretty goldfinch is my favorite for today, love her color and the softness/downiness of her feathers! Hope y'all had a lovely weekend! We walked, some in the rain, some out, did a few small house cleaning/maintenance chores, and watched a little tv. Mr.Front Porch mowed and trimmed and worked on the yard.
