Just a quick note here. Fall seems to be coming early. Some of the trees have started to turn colors, and drop their leaves.
It seems that some of our Goldfinches have fledged. I saw a male (the dad) and 4 or 5 little goldfinches who didn't seem to quite have the knack of the feeder. The little ones didn't seem to fly away when I went to the deck. This made "dad" very agitated. He wanted to leave, but wasn't going to leave the little ones.
