5/1/2003 backyard feeder in Lufkin Believe this is unusual as I would have
expected all to have completed migration by now.
House Finch (male and juvenile) M 5/5/03 backyard feeder in Lufkin At feeders in our back yard.  Usually don't expect that house finches would be this far south in the late spring/early summer.  Believe them to be nesting nearby, as my wife saw male feeding what apparently was young at feeder.
