Enjoying the Rain

For the past five days it has been raining in our part of Alberta. At first the rain was very welcome because we hadn’t had moisture for two months, but five days of it has too much, at least for the humans, since it has made everything very muddy, especially around our corrals. But the birds, especially the robins, and the frogs, are very happy!

Yesterday was the first day with a rainbow, so I went out in the evening to take some pictures. Here are my favorites:

The rainbow is very faint in this picture,

When it rains all the goldfinches come to the to the tree with the feeders to try to stay dry,

Two female goldfinches,

The female Ruby-thraoted hummingbird coming for a drink at the nectar feeder,
