Feathered Cuties

Today the Yellowthroat Warbler was back and strutting a challenge to his own window reflection. The roof panels on this bird feeder are only two inches wide, which gives you an idea of just how tiny this cutie is. When viewed in a tree canopy, he all but disappears.

On a sunny day, one almost needs sunglasses to look at the American Goldfinches, currently in their peak breeding apparel of dazzling yellows.



 
And if Sir or Madam would like to see something in a more magenta hue, might I suggest a raspberry tinted selection from the Purple Finch Department?

  1. Great set of pictures - love the colours of these birds. My blood pressure took a while to fall after the "wombat incident".

    Sorry for slow reply - hectic weeks!

    Cheers - Stewart M

  2. Aren't they delightful! Another Eastern Ontarian, too. Much fun.
    I like the composite, with the ruler. Well done. What a great idea!
