American Goldfinches on A Winter Day
American Goldfinches Dinning.
These cheery little birds are as interesting to watch year around as can be... and they certainly cheer up the winter blahs! These 7 are wearing their winter coats of a drab gray and green hue with black and white bars across their wings. They will frequent your feeder if you offer Niger seeds, a tiny black seed about a 16th of an inch long and no thicker than a straight pin. When spring is just around the corner they turn the brightest purest yellow and will cause your spirits to soar as you watch the transition! Then you will not care what the Groundhog predicts as you will know another season is dawning.
