The Goldfinches

In case you live on Mars,
 and did not know I was away at my sisters,
- I announced it everywhere -
I am back home in my little nest and I had a really wonderful weekend.
I flew...on an airplane...by myself...and it was quite empowering.

Thursday, before I left...as if I had nothing better to do...
I stood by the window and took some more pictures of the Goldfinches.
I had the window open, I was hanging out and they did not fly off.
They are very friendly, and pose nicely for pictures.




This one serenaded me.
I am pretty sure these are all males.
At this time of year, 
the males have lost their bright color and the males and females look very similar.

  1. Hello, Debbie! These are awesome shots of your Goldfinches. They are all posing nicely for your photos. I can not open the window here, they would all fly away. Happy Monday, enjoy your day and week ahead.

  18. Hi there --- Just checking in from Mars (because I am once again hopelessly behind on reading my favorite blogs). Huge congrats for making the plane trip "all by your self" ... that is empowering (At my great age, I have flown alone only twice and it felt like that both times.) Glad you got to visit your sis and that you arrived home safely.
