shades of gold

out the window this morning, flocks of goldfinch. oh, they've been there at the feeder for months, drab greyish-yellow against the winter white. but today they are at last beginning to turn gold, as these finches are in the brightness of summer.

I didn't know that about goldfinches (we don't, as far as I know, have them in Australia) - so thanks for sharing.

I think those are collector's birds in the Netherlands. I mean, people who keep birds for a hobby. Not the stuffed kind.

Some of mine are all spotted on their heads as if they forgot to straighten their hair this morning!
