Birds and Natives

It is indeed a pleasant thing to see birds eating the natural stuff.  It's mighty marvelous to see American Goldfinches prying seeds out of native wildflowers.  And my beloved caught this picture of one working at a dried up Purple Headed Coneflower.  This is why I am installing natives in the gardens.  The flowers are wonderful to enjoy, and the birds get a proper energy boost from their seeds.  I am hoping to see more of this scene in years to come!
