Sunday Birds

The goldfinch male, after looking rather awkward a couple of weeks ago, has finished moulting and is looking resplendent in his gold mating finery. And, he has a lady friend to eat dinner with!

So cute! What a bright cherry yellow!

The white-throated sparrow came back this spring, a couple of weeks ago - so eye catching with his golden dot (near his beak) and white throat.

And the crossbill came back this morning, almost a year to the day since he last visited, which was very exciting! Didn't get a pic because my batteries died! Auggh!


Also seeing a lot of the purple or house finch (not sure which, wasn't able to get a snapshot) over the last little while. It's great to see all the summer birds arriving! :)
