In which I inflict a grainy photo of a goldfinch on you

A Goldfinch amid the sunflowers

The sunflower patch is getting so ratty looking, I’m considering cutting them all down. But just when I begin to contemplate such drastic action, I come round the corner of the house and get rewarded by the up and down swoops of a goldfinch flying away. I can’t cut the sunflowers down yet! There are sunflower seeds for goldfinches to eat.

She even came back to eat some more. See? I know it’s a “she” because female goldfinches have the same patterns on their wings as males, but where the boys are golden, the girls are dusky brown.  Actually, by now, the male goldfinches aren’t golden, but more of a greenish lemon color. And they both like sunflowers.
