Staying BehindPosted: April 19, 2021
We always have Goldfinches stopping by in the winter. This winter the area hosted many flocks of the little birds. When they are visiting here, the Goldfinches are a drab olive green. The large flock that was in my yard eating through many bags of expensive Nyjer seed are long gone.
For some reason this fellow has stayed behind. I have watched him change his feathers to the bright yellow summer color, which we never get to see here. I thought maybe there was a female around, but I haven’t seen that bird recently. It will be interesting to see how long the male Goldfinch stays here all alone.
