Such alien looking birds to us over here but so beautiful, without being showy. What is the yellow one?
Birds and spring flowers....finally....everything is alive!!
I love the little red one- looks like he's dipped his head in a paint pot!
i miss the apple blossoms. the pic are as ever, delightful!
The yellow bird is a male American Goldfinch. A very common bird of young hardwood regeneration here in Nova Scotia. All of the 3 other pictures are of the Purple Finch, with 2 male shots and one of a female. Blossums seem especially full and beautiful this year with apples, cherry, pear, peach, hawthorn, magnolias - all in bloom right now. A feast for the senses!
