Lesser Goldfinch (Drinking from a Leaf) #6091

White Rock, NM

Carduelis psaltria

We had almost an inch of rain today in a big thunderstorm (thanks to hurricane Alex). There were lots a very wet birds. This is not the sharpest picture, but I thought it interesting to see that this male Lesser Goldfinch was getting his water by sipping directly from a leaf on the sumac bush.
