Growing Up Fast !

The little goldfinches are growing up fast. From the way some still have no red at all while some are breaking out into what looks like a virulent red rash, there must be at least two different families at the feeders these days. This afternoon I counted at least 7 - and since some were pecking around in the long grass for spilled seed, I wasn't even sure that I counted them all.
Sorry, again the photos are taken through the window - and after the torrential rain on Saturday it's even dirtier than it was before.


  1. Poor things do look rashy, but cute nonetheless.

  2. Your goldfinches are adorable. Nothing like the ones we have. And I really get into taking pictures through the window - especially in winter.
