More American Goldfinches

Here are some more photos of goldfinches feeding on giant rudbeckias.  These were taken a week after first post of goldfinches.

I’m sure these seeds look good to him but if bends over in farther his toupee is liable to slide off.

“Mmm, quite tasty but my toupee has slipped down and I can’t see anything.”

“There, that’s much more like it should be.  Now I just need to get back to the nest and see if I can blend it in with the yellows feathers a little bit better.”

“Hey Betty, did you see that gorgeous hunk with all the dark hair?”

“I can just imagine kissing him and running my beak through all that hair.”

As always, thank you for stopping by.


All photos taken with a Nikon D7100 and a Nikkor 80-400mm (120-600 “equivalent”) telephoto zoom.

    • Thank you Gabriela. I don’t have a lot hanging on the walls as we live in a small 1,200 sq. foot house, but what is on the walls is about 95% my photos. It’s a mix of subjects and sizes. Only two plant/flower photos, two night scenes (a diner and a Steak ‘n Shake fast food restaurant), two ocean scenes (a sunrise and an aerial view of shoreline), a building façade (B&W metal print), a very large print of the corner of a white building with a small, old fashioned, ornate drinking fountain a few feet away from it surround by bushes with red flowers, and a small print of a blue bird on a tree branch taken a long time ago with a pocket zoom camera. I would love to hang a lot more stuff but it cost so much for printing, mounting and framing. Also there is not enough wall space. Also I’d like to swap out some of what’s hanging as I don’t like it or it could be processed better as I’ve learned a lot in the past two years.

    • Dear David,

      I concur with Gabriela. Thank you for featuring my diminutive avian colleagues so commendably through the fruitful results of your bird-watching and excellent photography.

      Wishing both Gabriela and you a happy August and a pleasant summer!

      Yours sincerely,
