I hadn't seen a goldfinch until we moved into our new house. Now they are the primary guests at our feeders.
It's funny how excited I was to see that first flash of yellow in the yard and now they are virtually all I ever see besides the occasional house finch and scrub jay.
I'm assuming this is a goldfinch who hasn't changed colors yet for winter...??
Summer might be my least favorite season, but I am looking forward to seeing them in their bright yellow plumage.
