Landing at the Mission Fountain

Having spent this past Sunday afternoon enjoying the sunshine and clear blue skies in San Juan Capistrano, exploring the historic Mission grounds, you might well imagine I was in photographer’s heaven. While sorting through several hundred pictures and organizing into an enticing article, I’ve decided to make these adorable little birds landing at the fountain as a separate post. If anyone can identify the birds for me, please kindly do so! They’re a pretty yellow, with gray. ~SueBee (photo by SueBee)

    I finally got your site to load. I am glad that Jerry could help. He is very knowledgeable about birds and his blog is always worth reading.

      I really appreciate his help, and yours! The site he referred me to is very helpful… I see birds when I’m out and about and am curious about them. I’ll visit his blog as well. 🙂 ~SueBee

    Tom (Mr. Tootlepedal) asked me if I could help you out in identifying the birds in your photos. They look and behave like American Goldfinches, a cheery little bird, and one of my favorites. Here’s a link to more information.

      You’re extremely kind – and I appreciate the link. The lilttle birds do look like American Goldfinch! Interesting site that is. Thanks so much, both to you for your help, and to Mr. Tootlepedal for the referral. 😀 ~SueBee

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
