|HOUSE FINCHES HAVE A STORY IN VOL ONE|
A pair of Haemorhous mexicanus (AKA House finches) say grace before a meal (as evidenced in the photograph of them posted above which was taken when they visited my garden earlier this year). They have much to be thankful for.
After all, their bird type was nearly wiped off the Eastern seaboard by a conjunctivitis pandemic that rendered them nearly blind, hence they were unable to see their food sources, and nearly starved to death, which is how their entire bird type population was nearly dissolved.
This story re the fate of members of the Haemorhous mexicanus family is included in volume one of my book series, Words In Our Beak.

Like the Haemorhous mexicanus, I have much to be #thankful for too, and this bird type, whenever they grace me with their presence, is a good reminder to #givethanksinallthings.
