My birdfeeder has been seeing a lot of activity. It is nearly empty at the end of each day, and it is not uncommon to look out and see 30 birds flocked around it and the suet. I noticed something today that left me glad in my heart. Goldfinches are bright yellow in the summer, but fade to a dull khaki color in the winter. However, I noticed today that these little birds are already beginning to turn yellow again.
Spring is coming!
This has been a long winter.
