It's a Baby Bird, Balloon Kind of Monday Morning

Jul 06, 2020

We have a very prolific pair of Red House Finches who make a nest in an old satellite dish attached to our house. It's right outside one of the art studio windows and while the dish is an eyesore, the inhabitants are not! This past fall we had our house painted yellow and debated on throwing that satellite dish away but I just couldn't bring myself to do it. This spring, I took the screen out of the window and have been enjoying the baby birds up close and personal. Usually she lays two sets of eggs but this year is special, this is her third! I've been carefully keeping an eye on her nest and caught them newly hatched this time (I think) as there is still one more egg to go. When I made kissy noises at them, this little one popped up, mouth open, ready to eat!

I headed over to my favorite "signs" website, where Avia wrote a post about finches.

When finches come into our awareness it is a sure sign of ebullient times ahead. Finches are a sparkly omen of high energy and bright days on the horizon.

Native wisdom holds the finch as an oracle of celebration and upcoming festivities.

The song of the finch is holds a great deal of symbolism. When the finch sings to our awareness it is a beckoning to unleash our own song. If we’ve been concealing our brilliance from the world – the finch is a sign to start making our value more audible and available to others.

The finch will sing lightly to your heart, and guide you on a bouncy path of creativity.

♦  Flight:

Full of zeal and zest. The message here is “Enjoy the journey!”

♦  Color:
Derived from food source (finches don’t produce their own pigment. The quality of their food determines their brightness. Better food, better color). Message: “You are what you eat!” Feed your body good stuff, and let it flourish brightly.

♦  Diet:
Finches feed their young plant matter (not meaty worms and such, like most birds). Another message “Nourish your body!” with good greens from the earth.

I'm feeling pretty lucky that there are finches outside my window!
And, apparently the universe didn't think that was enough fun for the day, so a bright yellow hot air balloon was sent this morning as well! It landed in my neighbor's alfalfa field to the south of us:
What a beautiful start to my week, I hope you are having a great Monday as well!
