Spring has arrived

The birds were out this weekend. The Pine siskin was looking very handsome on the feeder.
An iris from Easter.
This bird looks like a Savannah Sparrow to me. I don't think I have seen him here before.
The goldfinch looking to see what I was up to.

The Pine Siskin didn't seem to mind me watching him.

The pine siskin was dipping into the pond for a blade of grass.

He got it.

You may already know this, but the goldfinch in this post is a Lesser Goldfinch. They yellow undertail coverts and greenish back are one clue. Nice blog. - Greg
