GOLDILOCKS

This little guy stopped by to say hello. He came splendidly regaled in his sunday finest. He had a bite to eat, said thank you, and was off. The American Goldfinch never overstays his welcome.

  1. He would have been welcome to tarry a bit at Chez la Vache, where there is a welcoming balcony - and no marauding chat...

  13. He's a beauty! I wish they would stay around here later into the spring. They usually leave before their color gets this bright, but I do have a lot of them in the winter.
