Early Birds


I took a 7:00 AM walk at the Desert Botanical Garden yesterday where I saw lots and lots of finches out feeding on the various plants.


The goldfinches were in the vegetable garden feasting on the drying blooms of a plant I didn't recognize.


And, the house finches are at the "watering hole" getting some morning refreshment.


They all seemed to be taking advantage of the relatively cooler morning temperatures, as was I.

Then you can all have a nap when it gets hot later!
Thanks for the Raptors congrats, Sharon!

Beat the heat and go early in the morning, sounds like a great plan to get some wonderful bird photos. Well done, Sharon. Is it nap time yet? :)

Nice to see each of them have different colours.

Little birds are everywhere in Connecticut. I really don't know which is which. I think I would randomly call them finches or swallows and see if anyone contradicts me.
