A goldfinch fed at the feeder today! Hooray!

Patricia, love your sea gulls and ... oh dear! I don't know what kind of bird that graceful dude is. Really made me laugh and smile.

I agree with Mindy, I miss you Steph!

I have seen only one goldfinch this summer, so yesterday I brought home some niger seeds and a bird feeder for the small seeds. I hung it at the bird feeder station, turned on the goldfinch videos and hope to see yellow flittering in and out of my garden soon.
