Bird Day at the Pond

The camera snapped a bunch of pictures of various birds hanging around the large pond this week. I think we are getting more birds because it has been pretty dry and the pond provides them a bath and good drink of water. The first little guy is a Goldfinch (I think). We have seen a number of them at the bird feeder and they are quite stunning with the bright yellow body and black wings. The second in probably a bit more dangerous for the pond life as I think this is a baby Hawk. He has the same markings as the full grown Hawks we have seen regularly. But he is about 1/4 of their size. So maybe our big Hawk has had babies and is teaching them how to steal our juicy Goldfish. At any rated this is a nice looking bird.
