Random Five Friday

Since it’s been a while, I thought that today, I’d share a R5F post:

1.) Early Wednesday morning, I went out to fill the bird feeders. As I came around the corner of the house, this was my view.

2.) Speaking of bird feeders, the tiny goldfinches may be my favorite birds to watch as they enjoy the feeder sock.

3.) My niece, Donna, shared this photo of her son, Ray, at a recent track meet. It was taken by his coach. I know nothing about track, but I think this is just an amazing picture.

4.) An especially striking sunset from one evening last week.

5.) Last night, I went out to once again fill the bird feeders, and thought I’d share this little video of my outing. There is sound, whistling by me and quacking by one solitary duck. She later came up in our yard, and when I threw corn out to her, she flew away. The deer always seem curious when I whistle to them. In the background, you can see their entry way into the marsh grass.

  1. Nice peaceful morning video and great photos. Teddy is like a little dog – if I whistle, he comes to me right away. David thinks that’s hilarious.


  2. 5 gems! Thanks! You niece’s son looks like he’s trying very hard-and succeeding. Great form!

  3. Oh, goldfinches! I haven’t seen them yet. Thanks for sharing. They always make me smile. Great random 5. Ray deserves being bragged on – a runner – WOW!!!

  4. I always enjoy your RFF posts. You always capture the loveliest photos and these certainly qualify (and I loved the video too!). My son ran track in high school and did very well at it, so I can tell a great runner by his form and let me tell you, your nephew has it! I’m sure that’s why his coach took that photo. Good luck to him in his running endeavors. He looks like a winner to me!

  5. I definitely see a runner there… great form…
    & I like the “outdoorsy” feel of r5f today !
    The finches are some of the best looking birds ….

    I too agree another great R5F. Pictures are wonderful. Ray is looking and doing great. Much to be proud of in that young man. ❤

  7. Great photos ! Our goldfinches are still in their winter colors – with snow still on the ground. Is that a heron in the water at the beginning of the video ?
