The other day, we were out for a spin around town and general grocery shopping. Had the camera with me, hoping to see some Goldfinches in a certain spot where they hang around but that was not to be. Went to Marsh Creek to check out the waterfowl population but there weren’t any at all! Noticed two Belted Kingfishers flying around in a distance, and was thinking «If they only could come over and sit down here!» LOL A few seconds later one of them sat down on a branch, right in front of me. First time I’ve ever seen one that close and I was happy in spite of all the branches and twigs.
The following day was Saturday. In the back of my mind, I had the WordPress weekly photo challenge, which was «Connected». Didn’t see anything that inspired me … not for that anyway. On our way back, we stopped for red light, I saw two, really tiny, birds on a power line. The camera was already hanging around my neck, so I rolled down the side window and shot this. I really just wanted to see what they were — I couldn’t see from where I was. They’re young Am. Goldfinches. Could have fit for the photo challenge, but now it’s already Tuesday.
Guess I’ve had some luck with the birds, lately! I met a Blue Heron a couple of days ago too! I was very pleased … they’ve always been too far away before.
