Pretty Little Visitors
We have had some visitors to our backyard.
They sing, make a bit of a mess, and then abruptly leave after they have eaten their fill. No, it’s not my family. We have become a favored pit-stop of some American Goldfinch.
I’m hoping to catch a better picture one of these days soon but the musical little things are a bit jumpy when I get too close. I also caught a Common Redpoll scavenging for niger seed under the feeder but he’s so tiny (only as big as my thumb) that i couldn’t get a decent picture at a distance.
I’m hoping to get another bird-feeder that will encourage even more pretty birds to visit us but I don’t want anything that would become an all-you-can-eat buffet for the local Grackles.
