Nice to see some birds who aren't cold and wet as it's been for the past week


I love goldfinch; lesser, greater, any degree they are beautiful to me. Great photos, Sallie, and it is good to see the towhee so close.


They are two cute little birds. Love the puffy chest of the finch.


Beautiful birds to have around.


They are adorable. Not around here at all, though we do have goldfinches. We put up a nyger seed feeder this year, and the finches love it.


never seen the towhee before. Seesm like a charmer. :)


I must say it is a relief to be back on-line. I have enjoyed catching up on all your recent posts, especially interesting was the one about the dam.


Pretty little things!


The Lesser Goldfinches are so cute, as is the Towhee. Nice shots!

Nice birds - "I wish I could see one sometimes"!! Maybe we should organise a yard swap!

Thanks for linking to WBW.

Smart looking birds to have at your feeders Sallie.


Lovely birds and nice shots of them.

Great captures!! Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.


I laughed out loud at the expression on the Goldfinch's face.


Beautiful birds! I never seen a towhee before.../Susanne

Fantastic images of a great birds!!! Love the towhee no matter what the 'first' name is.


Fascinating to see so close up. You live in a nature lover's paradise!

Great shots of these interesting birds. The towhee reminds me of a robin. I wonder if they're in the same family? I agree, there's nothing "lesser" about those sweet little goldfinches.


Cute birds! Nice close up of the first one.


Looks like you have the same birds visiting you that I've been seeing.


Great photos and beautiful little birds to have coming in to your feeders.


You are lucky to have these cute little birds around you. Thanks for visiting:)

Two smashing birds. Nice shots.


Lovely birds. First one is cute.


Nice photos! I do think we have the first one, but the other I've never seen before!
Greetings Pia


He posed so sweetly!
I don't think I've ever seen a towhee.
Lovely shots Sallie!

I wish we had Towhees! It's been a long time since I've seen one. American Goldfinches are common here, but not the Lesser variety.


I saw my first spotted towhee of the season yesterday. Summertime birding is not very good here but now the activity is picking up.

They are as cute as my latest pet in the jungle:

A lizard.


the towhee has just rich color. so pretty. i'm getting ready for our goldfinches to arrive on their way through. :)

Love the sweet face of that little Lesser Goldfinch. Beautiful shots, Sallie.

I'm freezing this morning, its 51 on our porch ):

Lesser goldfinch is an almost insulting name for such a quietly attractive little bird!! Great shot!!


Beautiful birds, such views are giving much joy. I am greeting


These birds are so cute and beautiful Sallie, I especially love the innocent expression of the Goldfinch :)


Cute feeder birds, Sallie! I did get to see the Towhee but I missed the Lesser Goldfinch when I was in Oregon. You do see wonderful birds there! Thanks for sharing, have a great day!


Such sweet featherballs !


They are new to me because I have never seen these birds in my tropical island. :)


I'm seeing those same Towhees under my feeders also. Fun to watch.

Great photos of the small birds, BUT remember the wretched Indian Mynahs will kill them, if ever they appear in the USA. Be vigilant at all times, you do know what they look like and report to authorities if even you think you have seen one - just take a photo.
Brisbane is completely devoid almost of the small bird varieties. Thanks to those wretched Mynahs!
So depressing to have seen what has happened.
