BIRDS AT BREAKFAST

Had a flock of little newbies in the yard this morning. They are so tiny, maybe a little over four inches long.

There are only spots for two at a time. But they do check out the other feeders too. But this is a totally remarkable shot if I do say say. To actually catch the wings in flight.

I do believe these are lesser goldfinches. They are so tiny. And they flit around so quickly. There'll be a dozen one moment and non  the second, and then they're back.

It's currently one degree above zero here...I think all the smart birds have left the midwest.  brrrrrrr

Your inflight shot is spectacular, caught just in time.  I see color in your photos and I'm so jealous.  I look out and all I can see is white, bare branches, and snowmobiles.  I have noticed the daylight is lasting longer, we'll make it!

What a delightful scene! Who could resist waking up to this sight. Wonderful work catching one in flight in a picture, no easy feat in itself. Thanks for the smile today. (Hugs) Indigo
