One ought every day at least,
to hear a little song,
read a good poem,
see a fine picture, and,
if it were possible,
to speak a few reasonable words.

– Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

A goldfinch sits at the edge of a birdbath. I hung four feeders from the branches of our sweetgum tree, and four goldfinches showed up almost immediately. They’re beautiful and fun to watch.

  1. You got him! Good for you (and good of God!)It’s funny, I posted a photo of the red male house finch this morning. We must be doubly blessed!

  2. One of my favorites! I bought a feeder for them that only they can feed from. Only they can feed upside down by holding onto the perch. They are a delight to watch. A beautiful shot, Bonnie.

  3. I always love the beginning of spring when these guys really start to brighten up in color. Such a contrast from their drab winter coats. Wonderful photo!
