Hi JoAnn.....wonderful gallery....beautiful birds & flowers....hard to pick just one to comment on....this one caught my eye as we have house finches here in Arizona....this time of year they huddle on our pation up against the back sliding door....I imagine to get some of the cooler air from inside the house....also our fountain is a relief for water although I imagine the water isn't very cool....Happy 4th, again.... #8734106
