I took this photograph this afternoon. It was a sunny and blustery day here in Maine. This is one of several black-capped chickadees perching in a maple tree. The birds were brave enough to be out in this weather and it was business as usual in the avian world.
Here is a photograph of an American goldfinch perching on a dried sunflower plant. These birds haven't been around lately. They seem to come and go during this time of year. I suppose they will be back eventually.
