We're just past the first day of spring - so I am featuring a spring stitch and a new arrival or two.
over the weekend I saw a pair of American Goldfinches, but was not able to get a photo.
So I was thrilled when a pair of Lesser Goldfinches showed up that I had my camera at hand. This is the female.
And here is the male.
They are not melodic birds.
Rather they make a grating mechanical sound that is instantly recognizable.
I'd forgotten just how small they are.
Much smaller than my House Finches or American Goldfinches.
Finally the pair flew to the feeders.
Welcome back you two!
