A Cloud of Finches

House Finches

A cloud of birds rose up from the northwest hilltop as I approached.  There must have been at least a hundred.  I sat and waited quietly for them to return.  When they did, I could see that these were House Finches.  They’ve certainly been active here for some time, but I’ve never before seen such a numerous flock of them in the park.  It looked like fennel seeds were the main attraction.
