This goldfinch was at our back yard bird feeder this afternoon. Not many birds have been partaking of the food at our bird feeders. My husband thinks feral cats and/or a hawk in the area is keeping the birds away.
Even though snow covers the ground and temperatures are hovering in the low 20s, I can tell by looking at this goldfinch that Spring is on its way. How can I tell? The goldfinch is losing its brown winter shield in favor of its Springtime yellow coat.
