They’re Back and Ready to Nest

May 14th, 2012

I captured this pair of goldfinches today and they are in their breeding colors so we should be seeing babies in a few weeks! I love to see these little guys in the yard and not just because they are the state bird. They are colorful, boisterous and just liven up the landscape! They have been trying to fly into the picture window all morning but they are smarter than most birds; they know something’s there and don’t crash into the glass, they just flutter up to it, hover a little and then fly back to the tree. Sweet birds!!

    You know we only see goldfinches in the winter here and they are very drab, but still enjoyable at the feeders. These are beautiful!
