Even the sparrow finds a home, and the swallow a nest for herself, where she may lay her young, at your altars, O LORD of hosts, my King and my God. Psalm 84:3
We have birds who have built a nest in the light on the front porch of our church, and it really reminds me of this passage from the Psalter. However, I’m afraid that these two little guys eating at my feeder are house finches (Carpodacus mexicanus). At least, that’s what I think they are. I would be happy to be corrected by any ornithologists out there. We’re all praying the ice storm in Oklahoma passes quickly and doesn’t cause the same damage as the ice storm of 2000.
