Thumb of 2016-05-14/PEisland/5d3806 I get lots of purple finches, American gold Finches and lots of different birds in my gardens. I live in Prince Edward Island Canada for the 6 months of spring , summer and fall and in Florida for the winter. I have planted a butterfly flower garden and I planted Minarda beebalm for the humming birds. I have a lot of bird feeders and water available for the birds

Welcome! Hello there! I'm Melanie, the friendly moderator. When you get a minute, it's always helpful to fill out the profile info so it shows in the top corner of your messages. I always feel silly calling people by their usernames. We also have a thread dedicated to showing off our bird photos. We do one thread for each month. Feel free to drop in there and post your pics! The thread "Bird photos - May 2016" in Gardening for Butterflies, Birds and Bees forum

I'm a butterfly gardener myself, and a Florida native so I have to live with the weather year-round. Let me tell you, you're in the right place. It was melting hot here today and the mosquitoes are getting bad. We also have a butterfly thread so feel free to visit that, too! Just poke around and let us know if you need any help!

Welcome! PEisland!

Very cool! I just love Purple Finches!

I have had a few here over the years but never like in your photo.
