Well here's my little Goldfinch all decked out as you will see him this late spring and summer. In the fall and winter they are mostly brown, for camouflage I assume, so their predators can't see them in the bare trees. Come spring and summer it's mating time and both the male and female turn brighter yellow, the male, or course, outshining the female in all his finery! I hope you are enjoying all my birds. Now on to the hummingbird which will be making it's appearance soon I hope! I put up a hummingbird feeder last year but it must have been the wrong height or in the wrong place in the garden because I didn't see any. Maybe I'll try the backyard this year, away from the traffic.
