American Goldfinch, 7-29-10. I’ve been seeing lots of these birds lately. They’re always on the move, and so far it’s been impossible to get a decent close-up. These photos do not qualify. This flock was in the backyard this morning. The photos are taken through a window. They all flew off when I opened the door. Click to enlarge

Sad story, 7-29-10. There’s a large window on our second story deck, and small birds sometimes will fly into it. Most of the time they’re stunned, but they eventually fly off. We’re hoping this little guy, probably some sort of sparrow, can recover. We were afraid he would fall off the second story deck so we moved him/her to our patio, which is under the deck. We’ve put out some bird seed and water. We’ve said a prayer. Click to enlarge

Hi Pat: Congrats on your eagle picture, and those are wonderful butterfly photos. Our little bird made it through the night. We had to move him back to the top deck outside. There's too many raccoons roaming around as well as coyotes. In the meantime, I'm going to repeat one of my earlier pictures, and give you and anyone else a challenge. Here goes: There are 10 birds, all of whom I believe are goldfinches in this picture. Can you find all of them. You'll probably have to click the photo to enlarge it. It took me several times before I found all 10. Click to enlarge.

There are 10 finches in this photo. Find all of them

Hi Ed * I think your little injured bird is a Swallow. Not sure what kind??
I hope it flies away.

Ed Keagle you have exactly 5 pairs of gold finches. the females get easy to spot with practice.
Those are barn swallows

Poor little birdie, I hope that it makes it.

One of my friends raised a bird that had fallen out of a nest. It had no feathers and she raised it until it flew. She then took it outside and put it on the bird feeder. It would come back to visit her whenever she went outside, she finally had to ignore it.Sad She wanted it to be with the other birds as they had accepted it.

I did find the 10 birds,Wooh
