House Finch hubbies perch nearby
and serenade their brooding wives.
At Luke and Claire’s we hear them all around the house
because there’s a nest on each porch.
Way better to have HFs as models for good hubby behavior
than the bully Mr. Hummingbird:
the Mrs. has to beat at him to keep him from doing harm.
Every morning when my hubby sings songs to me and plays his guitar
I get how nice it must be for Mrs. House Finch.
This is one of the songs Jack sings most every day while I sit like a brooding House Finch. (brooding, for you non-birders, is a good thing, by the way. 🙂 )
This is the nest of one of the House Finch couples at Luke and Claire’s. It’s on the back porch. The light is right over the door they go in and out of all day.
