It's beautiful today. A little while ago I was out on my deck cutting up some string into little pieces for nesting material, when I saw a male Goldfinch at my sunflower chip feeder. I thought I heard another little finch when I spied a female Lesser Goldfinch in the neighbors crab apple tree. I sat down on the steps and waited. While sitting there I saw no less than four pairs of Lesser Gold Finches coming to my feeder. What a joy to see! Now I know Spring is officially here! And while watching the finches a pair of Downy Woodpeckers came to my feeder as well.
