BELINDA GROVER PHOTOGRAPHY

STOPS ALONG THE WAY

OUT ON A LIMB (TWO PHOTOGRAPHS)

22 Comments

I believe this bird is a sparrow but I can’t say for sure. For the past month or so we’ve been visiting a wildlife garden as our favourite reserve is still closed after a recent storm. The garden attracts many smaller birds and I was pleased to capture this bird balancing on a twig in the water.

  7. I third the goldfinch ID. A female, possibly already getting into winter plumage. Nice shots!

  8. Good eye! Very nice photos. I think this may be an American goldfinch (immature, maybe?). It’ll be heading south soon…
