And now for a little fluff as a diversion… I always wondered how a bright yellow Goldfinch could survive in the wild. It always seemed like they stuck out like a sore thumb when they are at the bird feeder. I guess I know now why their color can be very effective. This guy was amongst the flowers along the driveway enjoying a snack. They apparently like coneflower seeds as I have seen them on many days here foraging for food.
