    1. Thanks, David. I think s/he’s already out in the world, having fledged with siblings. Wishing them all full and happy lives.

    1. Thanks, Bob. And now the baby finches are looking like they want to fledge …. today. Wait! I say. I’m not ready. 🙂 Frankly, I’m not sure they are quite, either, but their parents know a lot better than I.

    1. Thank you. Used a long lens and tried to get close enough to capture this little one’s sweet face without disturbing it or its siblings. Success, I think!
