Summer Goldfinch


Summer Goldfinch
Goldfinches with their pretty song and lemony yellow plumage are a welcome addition to any feeding area. At least one of the three species can be found in most areas of the U.S. and they're easy to attract to your yard. And goldfinches are social birds. Once you've attracted one or two, chances are that soon you'll have all their friends at your feeders, brightening up your yard.
Quote by~Robert Ingersoll
Give to every human being every right that you claim
for yourself.

Pierce Brosnan once worked with the circus as a fire eater!
