Rainy Day Diversions

It appears that we are stuck with yet another rainy day, so it looks like my birding is going to be confined to taking photos from the comfort of my living room.  These two birds at the feeder this morning make quite a contrast. The color contrast is immediately apparent, but look closer at the contrast in emotions of these two, the emotional objection of the Purple Finch in contrast to the stoic position of the Lesser Goldfinch as he holds his ground.  The Purple Finches have dominated the feeder all winter, and for this Lesser Goldfinch to show up was too much for this Purple Finch to take.
