NEWBIES ON THE FEEDERS

A pair of Lesser Goldfinches showed up in our garden today…and our first White-throated Sparrow of the season.  In the final image note the longish toes (click any image to enlarge):

Here we have five birds on feeder at once.  From left to right: female Lesser Goldfinch, her mate, House Finch, starling, House Sparrow with back to camera.  In that second image do you think the starling is looking down his beak at the sparrow?  Odd, they are both European emigres at home in America.five on feedrfive on feedr2LEGO PAIRDAll photos taken through a window pane.
