Saturday Critters ~ 84 ~

The Goldfinch Galla...

We always have a lot of pretty Goldfinches in the yard.
But this summer,
it's as though they have exploded on the scene.
It has become one of the birds I don't even get up for anymore,
I am not taking anymore pictures of them
because it is one of the birds I have way too many pictures of.

They are easy to photograph, when they land, they stay put
and are not easily scared off.

Here they are on July 10th...



and again on July 13th


These are the males, they are a much brighter yellow
than the females.
I have not been seeing many girls but the boys are abundant!!

Sharing images taken on July 10th and July 13th 2015 with

  3. May be in one day when you wake up, you will find these birds stay put besides your bed, singing good morning to you.
    And I say happy birthday to Addie.

  6. Very nice.
    When I fill the feeder they come in flocks (gluttons). When I don't they come a few at a time especially to the sunflowers.

  7. I love these birds! A few years ago, I had tons of them. Since then, only a few. They all must have gone to your house.

  14. We have more than usual here this year too, Debbie, and in a couple of our birdhouses, their babies have just hatched over the past couple of days, which is late in the season (?) I think.
    They really are just adorable little things.

  16. What a fun pop of color. With all the cats out back we don't see too many birds. Bummers!

  17. I love their vivid yellow! We have some around here - we call them Napolean - the little buggers plot their battles at the feeders. But they're so pretty and fun to watch!
