Fly Away, Fly Away, Fly Away Home

We got a bird today!!! Yahooo!!!

I have no clue what it was. A medium sized one with grayish brown feathers, a smooth head and a red cap.

And now I canít get enough. Iím hoping he went to tell his little bird buddies!!

He needs to come back! I know which direction he flew when he took flightÖ Iím afraid Iím going to become aÖ bird stalker. Gah!

Could be a house finch, not to be confused with a Paul Finch. AKA, Sh*t Brick.

Your description sounds like a woodpecker.

Most likely a purple finch.

Purple house finches do seem to bring their buddies. I hope it is one of those. Also hope you don't have starlings. Demonic little birds, and they crap on everything.

Finches are pretty small, usually. If it was medium-sized and had a red cap, I'll bet it was a woodpecker. Probably confused, too, because I believe they eat insects. Maybe there are ants or something on your birdseed? LOL
