About the pictures. As my followers know, I do not live in a place where I get a lot of song birds. I have gulls and eiders in my yard. So finding these birds bathing along the banks of the Ipswich River was a real treat for me. In all of my time photographing birds, now measured in decades, this is the first time I’ve gotten decent photos of American Goldfinch.
