Goldfinch On Sunflowers

I grew a row of sunflowers in the back wall of my dwelling, and my intention was to attract goldfinches to the neighborhood. They came, ate, and calling for others to come. I miss seeing my backyard birds since I can't put up feeders.

Like clockwork, the Goldfinch came. Sometimes, there are many of them feeding on different sunflowers. They have lots of choices to hop from one flower to the next.

Usually, they would wait for the sunflower seeds to mature, but this year, they smarted-up and have eaten the young seeds instead.

Baby Killdeers

It was four years ago that I saw a killdeer bird in the neighborhood. I have moved, and this will be my second year in a new one. My condo complex and the adjacent one in the back is not a suitable environment for many wildlife critters.

However, once in awhile I saw a blue jay, or a cardinal, or a woodpecker, I get all excited. I knew their signature voice by heart.

On my way home one day, I saw a group of baby killdeers crossing the road, and I had to stop in the middle of traffic waiting for them, plus took snapshots.

They were so fuzzy and cute! I am glad that this family of killdeers were a success and healthy. Since then, I haven't seen them again. Registered & Protected

Morning Stretch

If you haven't gotten your exercise in yet for the day, be like this turtle and do some stretches. It is good for you, especially when you can get in some vitamin D too on a nice warm day like this.

2017 Male House Finch

Last year, I saw the male house finch in the front yard, by my living room window on the cherry tree. Since the trimmed the tree, there were no cherries for the birds to come by, including the gold finches that I saw before. It was sadden me to see such bare tree.

Today though, I saw this male house finch in the backyard by my allowed strip of gardening area. He was waiting for his mate as she prances around. He was patiently waiting while I took some snap shots, but he did gave me a mad look. A few minute later, they took off. My treasure of the day! Registered & Protected
