Seen recently at Ivy Creek….

Goldfinch on thistle

Doug Rogers also took this photograph of goldfinches, noting:   "This is an American Goldfinch adult who has taken its baby to the thistle patch to teach it how to get its own food. The baby is on the left and below the adult flapping and begging the adult to put the food into its beak!"  

Thank you Doug for sharing these.
