It's for the Birds

The Goldfinch are back in force this Spring. What you see in the photos that follow is pretty normal for most of the day. Usually there will be between 20 and 30 feeding at one time. In addition to the Goldfinch, we also have other feeders that are visited by doves, other finches, Red Winged Blackbirds, ducks (yep, they started to come back this week), starlings (who eat us out of house and home), the occasional hawk who comes for a quick meal, and squirrels (who have their own feeder).

On a more personal note, this week in addition to the algebra, there are two science labs that need to be done...will this ever end? Also, I must have slept wrong the other night, because for the past two days I haven't been able to move my left arm. Thankfully, today is the first day I am actually able to do stuff with it.


  1. I just love the little sweet sounds they make.

  2. That's a lot of birdies! We have finches but not that many at one time. Koko and Yum Yum have better Bird TV than we do!

  3. Boise Diva: I know and they chatter almost all day. It's weird, though, when you hear them chattering away and then all of a sudden they stop; almost like someone turned off a switch.

    Mari: They are really pretty and they are now slowly turning to their bright gold color...really cool to see.

    BeadedTail: Since I have the sliding glass door open, they spend a good part of the day watching them all. Needless to say, they are in kitty heaven.

  4. I get an occasional goldfinch but not many. Too bad because they are one of my favorites. You have a busy feeder there
    Too bad about the arm, I hate that when you sleep all funky and then suffer for it for days.
