On a rainy Saturday morning…

It is the 20th of August 2011 and a rainy Saturday morning when a Bullfinch family comes  to visit a Lilac by the porch. During the summer a couple of these birds have been regular visitors, but this family is new acquaintance. They were attracted to the place by some seeds of sunflower left here and there by others. The father was soon eagerly feeding the youngsters. In addition some rather young Chaffinches were flying around this morning. Here are a couple of shots from the visits.
