Friday at the Flicks - Dragonfly - Juvenile Goldfinch

A bit of video of the female Common Darter. A bit wobbly as I was balancing one leg of the tripod on the window ledge:

These past few days the level in the nyger feeders has been going down at an alarming rate. All of a sudden I get about a dozen Goldfinches visiting every day. Even when they are not all on the feeders I can hear them twittering to each other in nearby bushes. This video is of one the the juveniles having a good wash in the bird bath:

Have a great weekend observing the wildlife around you wherever you are.


  1. Another good Friday video. It will soon be time for charms.

  2. Hello again, John. Great image of the darter although I still get shivers when I see them (maybe a wildlife pond will be a mixed blessing). Absolutely loved the video of the young Goldfinch bathing. We've Siskin groups descending here :-)

    A young Osprey has caught my attention over the summer, what fun it has been to follow :-)

    1. Hello Shirl. I don't think dragons stay still long enough to be a problem. Lovely to watch them darting about. I found the Goldfinch very sweet. It looked as though it was still learning how to bathe thoroughly.


Thank you for visiting. Hope you enjoyed the pictures. Any comment, or correction to any information or identification I get wrong, is most welcome. John
