spanary

When I first saw this little bird out the window, my immediate reaction was, 'That looks like a cross between a sparrow and a canary!', so I decided to call it a spanary. When I showed the picture to Hubby, he decided it must be a 'finarrow' (finch, sparrow cross).


Come to find out, it's not a saffron finch, it's a yellowhammer.

It is a pretty bird, it could be the Saffron Finch. Nice sighting. I have to go back and look at my shots of one from Curacao.

It looks cute.
I like how it has thrown a challenge to us to identify it. :)

I think your name or your husband's is better than the real one anyday. He is a beauty.
