Well, I haven't been over to that Home Depot in awhile so I don't know if there is a new family this year or not.
But in keeping with this theme, I did photograph a house finch taking a wee sip at the bird bath this morning.
A much bigger bird, one of those Rufous Towhees also stopped by for a drink but your intrepid photographer was too slow/clumsy with the camera to get a picture of him.
I did catch a tiny Goldfinch a bit later taking a dip after his sip.
The goldfinches are very flighty (heh-heh) so it's hard to catch them with the camera and this one had his head and other yellow parts turned away from me and one wing flapping in the air so you might mistake him for some kind of weird sailboat.
You just have to take my word that he was a goldfinch until I can get lucky with the camera.
I put out the hummingbird feeder a few weeks ago and had visitors in less than a day.
It amazes me how they discover the feeder so quickly.
Are their memories really that good, do you think?
Meantime my old Mexican Macaw (that's a parrot to some people) patiently keeps an eye on everything.
In spite of his size the other birds don't seem concerned about him one little whit.
