The other day I looked out the window at the bird feeders and noticed lots and lots of goldfinches.
They were in the trees and on the ground.
They were on every feeder, whether the feeder was filled with thistle, which is what they are supposed to eat, or sunflower hearts, which is generally for our other birds.
I was happily surprised to see that their yellow coloring is returning. Sure they are still pretty olive but there’s definitely a yellow tinge to them now.
Whatever their color, there sure were a lot of them hanging around.
If this keeps up I think I’m going to need another bird feeder. Or two.
