Hmmmm, the goldfinch has discovered that he is getting his picture taken.

This is a nice picture of the female goldfinch. If you look just to the left of her, you can see a portion of the male sitting on the other side of the bird feeder.
Ruby Throated Hummingbird
Finally!!! I was able to get 2 pictures of the hummingbird feeding at our feeder. It is a cold and drizzly day so I was quite wet when I finally got the picture! Notice the little ham is looking directly at me while I take his picture.

This is the second picture I took. He is getting ready to take a sip from the feeder.
