A Lesser Goldfinch against the setting sun getting a last bite to eat before bedtime.
This little Lesser Goldfinch was chirping up a storm in this lemon tree. I thought it was so beautiful that the bright green tree was full of yellow lemons and goldfinches and I desperately tried to get a shot with the lemons in the background… but all I could get was that one little tiny lemon edge on the left.
This nice male Lesser Goldfinch was kind enough to sit so that way this branch would frame him perfectly. So considerate!
This male Lesser Goldfinch looks like it’s standing in front of those blurry backgrounds that photographers take your picture in front of when you go in for a studio session. It’s like his senior pictures.
A female Lesser Goldfinch giving me the stinkeye. The goldfinches are eating me out of house and home lately. I’ve had to cut back how often I put out seed because I have to refill my feeder every other day at this point! It’s causing a mess in the yard… and all of this after my goal of getting rid of birdseed in the first place! Alas… the birds know my soft spot and exploit it!
I put up some branches in my backyard in the hopes that the birds would land on them so I would get better photos. So far, it’s been pretty awesome. The birds seem to prefer it over hanging out on my metal fence and I get better shots of them. Everyone’s happy!
A Lesser Goldfinch braving the intense wind we’ve been having. I’ve started putting out njyer seed and now my yard is significantly more yellow.
