For the first time in a decade, we have gold finches at the feeder. We always purchase food that will attract them, but we just don't seem to get many visitors.
The photos are a bit blurry because I took them through a window and screen. It has turned cool again and the windows are closed.
This feeder is for smaller birds but yesterday a yellow shafted flicker tried to eat some seed. They are rather large and are ground feeders. I was surprised to see it at the feeder. The gold finches are lovely. The females are more olive than yellow and when the purple finches are there at the same time, it very colorful.
Seldom, do I spend ten straight hours on a project. Yesterday I had that opportunity. The good news is that I like what I created. The bad news is that I could barely sleep---my head was spinning with ideas for new creations. Today I will finish what I began yesterday but at a slower pace.
Can it be mid-week already? Have a good Wednesday...
enjoy the day!
