  13. They are still cute. I saw more goldfinches this year than last, but I hear that the goldfinch population in NJ is dwindling.

  15. Well done, Debbie! The catch light in the eyes is really nice! We probably won't have goldfinches around until Nov or Dec.

  21. They are much more 'dazzling' in the summer. I suppose they are trying to remind us to find our winter coats too!!! I'm afraid we'll be needing them soon!!
