2013 Project 365 - MyLeroyPhotography

I'm always excited to see the migrating birds wintering in our area. I've seen few American goldfinches and a lot of pine siskins this year. But I'm always saddened to see the sick and weak ones fall. This golden finch didn't seem to feel well and another sickly pine siskin didn't have the strength to fly into the trees and stayed on the ground near the azalea bush. Always a heartbreaker for me.
