BOXIES in the making!!

SO, I was beginning to think I would never see another Box Turtle  in my corner of the world, well at least not in my direct path. I wasn't trying to be a peeping tom, but this is what I get. I went away for a few minutes and returned in hopes of getting better pictures, but they skedaddled away. Who said turtles can't move!!!

what's better than ONE Box turtle?? TWO OF THEM ____(getting married) LOL, maybe one day I will spot their children, but I shan't hold my breath.

GOLDFINCHES ,,, Eastern????

You really have to take a deep look, but apparently the GoldFinches have taken a liking to the birdhouse gourds I grew and painted a couple years ago. MOM and Dad are kinda shy, but I do see them feeding babies and avoiding me since they like the overhang beside the storage building. I managed a sneak picture while they were hunting bugs, I believe the babies have LEFT THE NEST the last couple days.
Its hard to get a good picture of the Parents.
BUT she/he is there hanging on the front of the gourd.
