Brilliant Color.....


The goldfinch is the Iowa State Bird.  The male feathers turn an intense yellow the further into the the summer season. My memories of them as a kid was when they fed off of the thistles on our farm. They didn't hang around the house so we had to be back in the timber and prairie area of the farm to see them feeding.

This is a lovely bird. Karen enjoys watching these where she lives; we don't see too many here. I wish you and Della a nice Fourth!

Should be interesting to watch them in farms and natural woods then... Indeed lovely in yellow
