Seed Demon: First at the Feeder

Male Saffron Finch (Sicalis flaveola)

Male Saffron Finch (Sicalis flaveola)
Location: Kohala Coast, Big Island, Hawaii

Look who was the first visitor to our ground feeder, very early in the morning.  You've probably heard the expression, "the early bird gets the worm"?  This male Saffron Finch (Sicalis flaveola) says phooey on worms.  What the early bird really gets is the best choice of seeds!

Love that little splash or red on his head. I'm with him - seeds over worms anyday!
