June26/Nature Notes

American goldfinch pulling seeds from ripened yellow sow-thistle

Brilliant yellow this time of year, male American goldfinches are hard to miss, especially since they tend to travel in flocks.

Hungry American goldfinches

This week they were active and everywhere...or so it seemed - weedy fields, backyards, roadsides and even our mulberry tree. They definitely sought out each other's company.

When I used to see a parrot in a pet shop I start thinking that it would be nice to have birds with exotic colours like that in Canada. Your photo reminds me that we do have them. Lots of them. Nice nature shot Camera Girl.

You posted great shots of one of my favorite little birds. We have them at our feeders also. And you are right, you never see just one. Sorta like potato chips!!!

Goldfinches are just little spots of sunshine that flit about and brighten our day! LOVE that last shot.

Leora said...

These are gorgeous! Can you tell the goldfinches to come visit us, too?

I love their sweet songs..I have a ball of downy material to put out when it gets closer to their nesting time as I think thistle is hard to find around here..Love the collages as always EG....the hot weather is going to return, but it has been really nice the last few days..Michelle
