The Yellow Finch

Posted in Home, Nature, Wildlife by leahyetter on May 26, 2010

The weatherman said we were going to be riding out thunderstorms and high wind today. Boy was he wrong. It has been a gorgeous day. I had a lovely morning walk, baked a macaroon pie, and for a little while stood and watched these golden beauties frolic all over the yard. They would fly from tree to fence to grass and then soar over the roof of the house. They even got close enough for  a portrait or 3.

    Thanks for resuming the Wheatland updates.
    Wonder if this is the same Gold Finch we have on our front porch. looks like it. If so get them some thistle seed and you’ll be covered in them.
