Come and experience the world of birds with me. You don't have to go far - just out your back door!
Wonderful photos. I've seen them in my garden too and this is the first time I have seen Goldfinches in anything other than their olive-drab winter plumage in the 30 years I have lived in Texas. I thought that they wintered here, and summered further north, I've never see yellow goldfinches before. But this year, they're turning color right here in my garden.
You are right - we usually don't get to see them change, but it has been quite a treat this year to watch this happen right before our eyes.
