This quartet seems to be socially separate from the gang of Nine that come into our garden most frequently. This appears to be a sorority of adult females.

That final shot is good view of the back of adult male Lesser. All other goldfinches seen here are the “big” Americans. Next to juncos they all look petite. One tea rose refuses to stop blooming–hale be damned!

I have dim recollections of sky blue. Today brought a brief reminder before the hale.

AN AMAZING VIDEO–TRAGIC, ROMANTIC, HOPEFUL, NEARLY UNREAL. Croatian man rescues a White Stork shot by hunters, and the bird survives and thrives and shares his life, and brings him dozens of feathery nieces and nephews. Click here.

If that whets your interest, go to myotube and search “CROATIA WHITE STORK.” The stork mates are said toi be the best-known couple in all Croatia!

Captive White Storks have lived over 35 years, so the wild male mate is most at risk.
