Two images from Sunday morning. I was hoping to find Varied Thrushes, but didn’t find any this time.

    1. It was pretty neat. I was in an Elementary school yard…the very back field where they play soccor, and run the dreaded mile….you know the out back. 🙂 On the edge of the outback and the blacktop is where the slide, and uneven bars are; that is where I sat ever so still waiting for the Goldfinch to return. I’d seen him land on the fence on my approach, and knowing birds are pretty much territorial, and habitual I thought he’d return.

      I slowly advanced into the the school yard and the Junco landed on the fence that separates the Kindergarteners from the rest of the classes. Despite not finding any Varied Thrushes it was a good morning birding.

    1. “Just passin’ through”. That’s about the size of this visit. They checked me out…and I them and off they went… through the fence! In my next life I hope I have wings. I would like the knowledge I’ve acquired here on Earth as me, and wings to fly. I would love to be a Kite, but we don’t get to chose I bet. 🙂

  1. Deborah, these guys are beautiful. I love seeing them in the fence cloth. So many contrasts. I can’t help but think about how fences symbolize being contained and trapped. These guys are just passing through (litterally). Great capture.
