You Gotta' Love the Boys!!


It was so much fun watching this beautiful Male Goldfinch,
as he feasted on the sunflower seeds!!

But as soon as he saw me, he took off!!
I need to spend more time on the side yard,
with these beautiful men, so they get to know me better,
and so they trust me.

  4. They're especially good looking with the bright plumage! Come winter they'll look like they've been living on the street for a while. :-)

  5. I love them, but they don't like me! For some reason the house finches don't mind my presence, but the goldfinches do. Unfortunately I don't have anywhere to hide in my yard, but I'm working on it.

  11. They should get used to you pretty quick. I have a finch feeder hanging really close to my patio and when it's cool enough (which has been weeks it seems) I sit outside and they will come to the feeder which is just a few feet away. Love the pretty boys!

  29. Hi these are great birds - we have goldfinches here too, but they are a different species. They were brought in be settlers from England.

    One day I'll get to see some of yours in the feather!
