Goldfinch Fledgling

This past week, the garden has been filled with chirps and squeaks and whistles and songs from the goldfinch family. While the mom’s been taking a break, Dad and the fledgling have been hanging out in our garden. They love the broccoli leaves and the Mexican sunflower seeds leftover from last summer.

While I was sitting in the garden, the fledgling flew into the desert willow and continuously whistled and chirped at me. I chatted back. He cocked his head, flew a little closer, and talked a little more! Then, the verdin came over to see what the fuss was! Soon, a whole flock of goldfinch, two verdin, a hummingbird, and a migrating yellow warbler were in the desert willow and the neighboring mesquite, all chattering at once!
