Goat's beard & phoebe

I have two videos, unrelated to the weekend!
This was so funny. This is a goldfinch on a Goat's Beard, after it had gone to seed. The second bird looks like a juvenile.  I took this video through the front window, from my arm chair.

Most of our birds had hatched and fledged their broods. Phoebe, however, is on her second brood. I was at the shed, looking for Fred Groundhog, and she flew out. I checked the nest, sure enough, 5 more little eggies!

My grandson and I saw a mama turkey and her brood of fluff ball babies crossing the highway yesterday. I had never seen baby turkeys before! Lucky for them it was a very quiet time of day.

What fun, balancing, a really fluffy seed head, great video. A lot colder down here, both fires lit early this morning, when I woke at 4.15 a.m.!!!

Well, there went all the goat's beard seed.

Hi Jenn, two lovely videos. I need to fill up my bird feeders. Thank you for stopping by my blog and leaving so many lovely comments. I had difficulty leaving comments for a while, I think this was on another blog you have, then this one popped up in my old side bar and here I am. I also changed computers. Hopefully that has done the trick. Good to be back and catching up.
