These funny, late summer baby birds...

...the last nestlings of the class of 2010, they are fledglings in late August and even September. This little thing is a baby goldfinch, from what I could see.

The Goldies normally perch primly on the water dripper, sipping the clean pristine water. This fellow must have lacked "an instruction manual" or a parent, dove in and decided he didn't like it.
