My contribution to
a fence built with wire and old trees,
stands along a Texas Hill Country road side,
it can be a lonely place,
for a little Lesser Goldfinch,
until his pals show up
We were staying at the Buckhorn in Kerrville, Texas back in April 2014 and I spotted these Lesser Gold Finches flitting around. I didn’t get the best shots of them, but of course the chase is always fun!
However, I did remember this lovely fence.

oh, that’s so sweet!! love how they gathered in their little squares. 🙂
thanks for linking
Thank you for hosting such a wonderful idea for photos! I don’t have many photos of fences, but I will now be on the look out for them.
You gotta have friends, that song just popped into my head! Too cute!! Enjoy your time in Texas, Sheila🙋
Hey Barb! Thanks! I sure hope that song didn’t get stuck in your head all day!
He looks so small in the middle of that fence.
Hi Margaret, yes they are little things! I’am glad you enjoyed my post, thanks!
How fun to spot these little finches. I’m glad they came to keep the one company.
I like your thinking with this post. 🙂
Hi Judy! Thanks!
Sometimes, I never know what I am going to write. I guess that is the fun, for me, to compile a “scene” and come up with the words.
Hope you are staying tick free. We have a neighbor that was bitten here in Loveland, Colorado. He developed Rocky Mountain Tick Fever from this bite and was extremely ill. It also is recurring, but each year a milder case. Be careful up there! 😉
The finches are cute, glad the friends showed up! Wonderful fence shots. Enjoy your weekend!
Hi Eileen! I am so glad his friends showed up as well! I hope you are doing well. I hope to capture a “critter” to post on your site. My problem is the way our house is situated on the hill, I can’t sneak up on them easily. I will capture one!
One day, while sitting in our basement, which is our computer/ham room, I deer looked in the window. Now that would have been a shot!
It is fun to chase birds and capture a fence in the chase…
Ellen, what more could we ask for – :-).
I adore chasing birds!
well that’s really neat there ended up being six of them. pretty.
Hi Felicia! There was a bunch of them and they were hard to get close to. They must have been migrating through the area at the time. I see a few here in Loveland. They are really pretty in their breeding plumage. I had one American Goldfinch in my yard the other day.
awww…so cute with all the little guys on the wire….
