Lesser Goldfinches feasting in the Berzerkeley Salvia
These photos were taken through our living room window in the morning, while it was still somewhat foggy.
Lesser goldfinches were feasting on insects in the Berzerkeley Salvia in the native patch.
There are three of them in this photo.
On the top of the shrub is a male. You can see its yellow chest and black cap on the top of his head.
You can see the male's black cap and yellow chest clearer here, as he faces the camera.
Two of the goldfinches in this photo.
You can see that the one on the upper left has something light green in its beak.
I suspect that it is the larva of a cabbage looper.
The goldfinch at the lower right has its beak open.
