Another gift from Angelica. It just takes my breath away to realize the great diversity that comes about by natural selection. No need for the god hypothesis.   Continue

" a pair of house finches feeding on the seeds of Lyre Leaf Sage"

I looked for seeds or plants and so far have not found any close by. I will keep an eye out for that plant and hope to attract more house finches. I used to have many, almost all of them are gone. I supply plenty of bird plants, feeding stations, however, the varieties of birds dwindle each year. I have photos of 20 years ago and even had tit mouse ... no more.

I recently had an interesting little drama outside of my kitchen window.  There was a pair of house finches feeding on the seeds of Lyre Leaf Sage that dot my untidy front yard.  The Lyre Leaf Sage sends up a slender stalk from variegated basal leaves.  The blue flowers bloom around the stalk and the seeds are then in these round rosettes on the stalk.  The little birds would jump up on a stalk to bend it down on the ground.  Then they would stand on the stalk and pick out the sends.  The pair went from plant to plant repeating this behavior.  I have not seen this before and was quite amazed.

The Meadowlark perfectly matches the Golden Asters.
