My Kitchen Window

Although the image is fairly small it did come out better than I expected. As I was doing dishes one morning I saw a male and female goldfinch, one on each side of the thistle feeder. It was quite comical, the male would take a seed and while he was eating it the female would take a seed. The process would be repeated so that they were alternately pecking at the feeder and it struck me quite funny. Maybe you had to be there to appreciate the humor.

The feeder is hung from a huge, old, oak tree in our front yard and it creates a lovely shady oasis. I enjoy looking out the kitchen window at the feeder while I'm doing the dishes or tidying up, for some reason I never tire of watching the birds' antics.
