Check Out the Goldfinches

Goldfinches Are Changing Colors!

Look closely at those little brown birds at your feeders. Do some of them have little patches of yellow? Then, those are actually male goldfinches once again regaining their bright yellow summer colors! In the fall, the males lose their yellow color and throughout the winter look pretty much like a female. But, once the spring days begin to get longer, the yellow color begins to return--a sure sign of spring, even on the most wintry days!
