Bird cafe ...........
We've had rain for the last couple of days, so I've been stuck inside. I happened to look out the dining room window this morning and this is what I saw. The goldfinch were waiting in line to get to the feeder. I filled up the feeder Sunday afternoon and it will probably need filling again by tonight.
They must sense bad weather coming. Seems like the birds will swarm around the feeders whenever it's getting ready to rain or snow.
They are dull looking this time of year, but in the summer they are a brilliant yellow. It's really colorful when the goldfinches, red cardinals, and blue jays get together. Sorry the picture is not very clear - I took it through the window.
