But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;) (Ephesians 2:4-5 KJV)
Below the slideshow Angel Long is singing my most favorite hymn. “And Can It Be” How could the Lord Jesus Christ Love us so much that He died for us? Enjoy listening to her sing my favorite as Sean Fielder accompanies. Both are members of our church, Faith Baptist.
Sicalis. sometimes classified in the bunting and American sparrow family Emberizidae, more recent studies have shown it to belong in the Thraupidae.
The Sicalis genus is composed of 11 Yellow Finches, the Saffron Finch and the Sulphur-throated Finch. Sometimes classified in the bunting and American sparrow family Emberizidae, more recent studies have shown it to belong in the Thraupidae.
The Emberizoides and Embermagra have 5 species. Emberizoides is a small genus of finch-like tanagers found in grassy areas in Central and South America.
A single member Volatinia genus has the Blue-black Grassquit. It breeds from southern Mexico through Central America, and South America as far as northern Chile, Argentina and Paraguay, and on Trinidad and Tobago.
The Sporophila is a large genus that has 33 avian wonders. They are relatively small with stubby, conical bills adapted for feeding on seeds and alike. Most species are strongly sexually dimorphic, and while “typical” adult males often are distinctive, female and immatures of both sexes can be very difficult (in some species virtually impossible) to identify to exact species. Females of at least some of these species have different ultraviolet colours, which can be seen by birds, but not humans.
Next we have the Oryzoborus Seed Finches that are 6 strong. These are all Seed Finches. Their beaks have the cone shape that allows them to break open seeds easily. Another of their Creator’s forethought to provide for them. (Information on species from Wikipedia)
With these, we will leave the last group of birds from this large Thraudidae Family until next Sunday. That will wrap up this long series of this family of beautiful avian wonders. Until next week, Lord willing when we finish, His blessings.
Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. (John 15:13 KJV)
