A baby goldfinch! How cute is that?

American Goldfinch

Baby Goldfinch 


The goldfinches are usually very quiet, but this week a goldfinch family has been chirping constantly. We'd normally criticize the goldfinch for taking too much seed, but there are three babies to feed.

Marian said to keep the baby duck photos coming. The last is of a duckling leaving. I hope she likes it too.

Green Heron

 

 


These aren't our best photos, but the green heron doesn't come by that often. They were taken at noon, but the day was dark and rainy.
