More Garden Birds

We had a pair of goldfinches on the feeders again today. This time I managed to get an uninterrupted view of one of them.

The bullfinches were, as ever, in a pair too, but today it was the female I caught…

This coal tit was alone, and enjoying a vigorous bath in our ‘spring’.

That’s it for today. Just what it said on the tin.

  1. Good over-the-shoulder shot of the Goldfinch, showing the markings on the back – don’t usually see this view.
    Some old ladies I’ve known who didn’t quite get it right with the lipstick ended up with a face like that.

  2. Great shots. The back view of a Goldfinch, with that black and white, always reminds me of an old fashioned tail coat with its buttons.

  3. I missed a chance at 3 male Bull Finches 2 weeks ago… I bent down to take a shot of a snail… something caught my eye and there right in front of me on a hawthorn was 3 beauties. Of course as soon as I move off they went. I was gutted. Quite rare sightings around here over the last few years.

    Birds are so very beautiful, aren’t they? My mom and I spent the last four days of our roadtrip at my godparents’ house in Pennsylvania and they have several bird feeders which attracted tons of really interesting birds. I had so much fun taking pictures of all of them. I think I need to convince my mom to put a feeder out in our yard, too, and see what birds it attracts.

    Thanks Ron
    Still maintaining radio silence. I’m back at work, but at the moment not inclined to get out for a walk afterwards. Soon I hope.
