Nothing like going through the sprinkler on a hot day! Here’s a fledgling House Sparrow (Passer domesticus) enjoying the sprinkler in our bird bath!

A fledgling American Goldfinch (Spinus tristis) on a perch close to our feeders. He has been chasing his parents around and every time they come near he flutters his wings and goes into beg mode!

Sunday Sunset

The end of a perfect Winter day today. Marking almost the middle of the month the temperature was up to 11 degrees C and it was sunny. Every Sundown here, the Crows flock together and head down south to where the roost for the night. I don’t know where exactly, but it must be a noisy place, when they all gather! Also in this shot is a flock of Gulls heading inland for the night.
