The most populous bird in the yard this week--at the feeder and the coneflowers-- is the American Goldfinch. The young ones are still flapping their wings and chirping, begging to be fed.
Most notable bird in the area of the feeder, sighted on Sunday: one Golden-crowned Kinglet. A thrush just perched briefly on the feeder, I suppose a Hermit, but I wouldn't swear to that ID. A small flock of Eastern Bluebirds was also observed in the neighbors' garden yesterday--maybe after the remaining raspberries?
