Funeral For A Finch

One of the House Finches that visit my bird feeder flew into our sliding patio door this past weekend and died. It was one of the pretty red males.

A female lit on the block fence and sang a sad and lonely song for him as we gathered him up and sent him to his final resting place.

Life is so fragile.

Between people walking into it and birds flying into it - maybe you should get some of those things to put on the door...or not keep it so pretty and clean.
Sorry for Mr. Finch. Their songs are so beautiful.
