Hope you all are staying warm…looks like most of the US and Canada are having very cold weather.  I know I have said this allot lately..but its cold here in North Carolina. We are leaving here for a Christmas visit to CT on Saturday…I am bringing all the warm weather gear I own…..

Stay warm!

  2. The females are lovely too! Great shot from the backside. Have a safe trip to CT. Stay warm and toasty.

  4. While not as colorful, the ladies are lovely too :) Wishing you safe travels my friend ..... we've got a Winter Stormm today. Hope you all don't get caught up in it when you start out over the weekend.

  5. Very nice images and birds, I seem to be one of the only people in my area not to have these beauties at the feeders so I'll just have to live through your photo's ;-)

  6. Thanks Friends...Glad you enjoyed the female Purple Finch too.
    She is lovely!
    Thanks for stopping by!

  7. Great shots of the Purple Finches! Some winters we have them and some winters we don't. I haven't seen any yet this winter.

    Have a great 2011!
