Today is the first day of my vacation. I tried to sleep in a little but heard the unmistakable song of an American Goldfinch in a tree just outside my bedroom window.
I gazed out the window into a yard full of sunshine. Soon, this lone American Goldfinch had company...and lots of it!
...then a few of their pals showed up...
...and next thing you know.....
This is one bird I'm going to miss terribly when the migration begins. Many of my favorites have already left (The Red-Winged Blackbird, for one) and soon, these beautiful birds will follow.
