The birds were having a riot outside my window in the snow yesterday morning. There were a couple of new birds and the Juncos, who I haven’t seen all winter, were out in force. Okay, I’ve seen one or two Juncos but there were many, many here yesterday. Plus a bird my Aunt assures me is a goldfinch, although I wouldn’t have thunk it. However Aunti Jude is a bird expert so I’m going to take her word for it (After I double check in my bird book.)
It’s not that I doubt you AJ, it’s just a matter of wanting to be sure and then I will remember. And there it is – an immature American Goldfinch. I knew you’d be right!
By the way, there were some larger birds, mainly Blue Jays, but I didn’t get them because they were all on the ground under the feeders most of the time. I’d get up to snap a picture and they’d fly away. But you’ve seen them already anyway.
Anywho, here we go:
