First Fledglings

Friday was another cold, wet and windy day. It was more a less a repeat of Thursday. I've seen talk of it being the coldest spring for about 30 years. It just doesn't seem like spring.

The bad weather didn't bother our goldfinches who brought their first fledglings of the year to our sunflower feeder. The youngsters were swaying about violently as the wind blew the rose branch they were perching on.

This youngster was getting his fill even when the branch was swaying about in the gale force wind.
This young bird had to undertake a little bit of wing action to maintain its balance. I wonder who will be next to bring along their brood?
