Goldfinches Looking Good

As the weather has progressively warmed and the days lengthen, our friends the American Goldfinches have phased out their winter plumage in favor of the bright summer fare.  Not all of them have completed the transition, but even the most junior males are discernably along to summer glory.  A side benefit is that I can detect these rascals draining the sunflower seed feeders from quite some distance away!  and that is another goldfinch behavior that I am accustomed to seeing this time of year.  If history is a guide, they'll skitter away soon and I may only see the bright yellows elsewhere.  We'll have to appreciate it now.
