A Handsome Yellow Fellow

...and a harbinger of spring. This morning I glanced at the feeders and saw one of our goldfinches. He is not yet in full breeding plumage, like the one below, but was almost there!

I love it when several males gather. Lots of color!

For a second there I thought you took that picture! I thought, "Wow! Those are some tame birds!"

What a nice sight, though...lucky you!

He's a handsome fellow (the one in the picture). I love this time of year. For some reason I love red-winged blackbirds and they are just coming back to the region now for breeding. I see many of them on the way to work at various places and I get warm fuzzy feelings.

I LOVE golfinches! But then, I love any birds that flutter to and fro, singing their beautiful songs and decorating the sky with their vibrant colors! See? They make me in a poetic mood!

We get red and brown finches in our area, they always try to build a nest in our mailbox!

I had to get an image to show folks (who have never seen one) what an Amercian goldfinch looks like. I may not be the most attractive person, but I don't have hairy hands.

And Sarah? Around here, Spring has sprung, the grass has riz, but we're wondering where the warmer temps is!
