Goldie

A dominant American Goldfinch (Spinus tristis) male perched on a branch. I say dominant becuase he spends half his day chasing away other Goldies from the feeders in our yard!

I See You

DSCN0085.jpg

A female House Finch.  This little bird in this years fledgling.  Despite the weather she seems to be doing quite well.  One can tell the age by the beak.  See the yellow at the back of the beak?  That’s from when she was a baby and she use to open her beak very wide so Mum would feed her!
