Don't overlook you garden when in search of wildlife photos, particularly birds. Heading out to look for photo opportunities, I noticed a number of birds flitting about the vegetable garden. Among the various species goldfinches were the most prevalent.
I planted a few sunflowers among the vegetables to make my garden more attractive to birds and the goldfinches obviously love them.
I can't expect much of a harvest. The birds are picking the seeds before they can ripen.
The highlight of the morning came when this male began feeding its baby perched on the rusty garden fence. Note the shelled sunflower seeds in the male goldfinch's beak.
