I’ve been enjoying watching the male goldfinches turn neon yellow. Just a few weeks ago they looked like this:
We put up a new feeder right on the window, and hope it draws more birds. So far, so good.
I took this series of goldfinch pictures, and am not enough of a goldfinchologist to know what it means. But they do seem to be arguing and then making up!
Jim and I were sitting under the horsechestnut tree and saw these tail feathers. What was it?
I walked under the branch and took a look from the other side. It was a mourning dove.
Other critters have appeared this week . . .
The magnolias are starting to bloom . . .
and the spring irises . . .
and we’re really enjoying the little species tulips. These are Tulipa turkistanica.
Hope you don’t mind if I sneak in another robin. He was warbling!
And I’m enjoying seeing the maples leaf out. Hope your spring week is going well. Namaste. Fran
