Today just to make this thing complete, I'm going to give you one more look at the American Goldfinch. This time, as the title states, I want to show you this little bird in mid-flight! Now obviously the pictures aren't the best quality, but the important thing is that I caught some of these amazing birds in flight!
These posts may seem like I got them all on the same day of seeing these birds, but this all happened over a period of about a month. On this particular day,when I saw the birds in these pictures, I got several nice shots of them, but these were obviously the most unique.
I happened to be coming back to the front of the nature park, about to turn the corner to where the parking lot would become visible to me. This was the first time I noticed these goldfinches towards the front of the park. I saw them to my right in the mini meadow area that separates the parking lot from the forest.
There were at least a half dozen of them flying from the tall weeds to the trees and back. This is kind of a small area so I thought it might be my best chance yet to capture a few good photos of these little wonders. At the time, I was completely right! I've gotten the pictures in my other posts since then.
I began wildly pointing the camera towards the general direction that I saw the birds flitting around, hoping to catch one or two in the middle of their flight. As you can see, I got exactly what I was hoping for! I also got a few good pictures of the bird from the first picture as he was perched on a tree branch, but I'll only show that on request.
Even though the pictures are both slightly on the blurry side, I hope you enjoyed this look at American Goldfinches in flight. These flashes of yellow that zoom past are what attracted me to them in the first place, so I felt that I just had to share that with you. That's my story!
I have one more post today, so scroll down and take a look at something special I have for you!
