American Goldfinch decided to eat some Cosmo seeds, havent seen this bird in my area in over 10 years only during winter for a short while in drab coloring. I was surprised!

Hi Keith,

Welcome! to ATP! Welcome!

That's wonderful and what a thrill to see the colorful (male) Goldfinch! Hurray! Hurray! Hurray!

Hope you see him and get to see the female the rest of the year. This is the month when they have their babies (one batch), as I was tell my husband this morning.

I love the Goldfinches! They're so sweet and wonderful! Love to hear them sing.

I'd thought you'd see the Goldfinches year 'round as I do.

Great pic! Excellent clarity! Thumbs up

I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.
