Goldfinches



First a single visitor just stopped by

We wanted to have even more

A feeder we bought

To get them over

With special seed got from the store



Two days we waited to get our reward

Then came a lovely pair

The feeder we bought

Was just too small

So a bigger one we added to be fair



The pair soon became four

And then deep joy

We had six, no seven, no eight

Golly gosh and crikey

What a flock of birds oh boy!



A twitcher friend told us true

Eight this year is good

Next year eighteen!

Year after eighty!

I hope you can afford the food!



These colourful birds, so small and fine

Grace our garden every day

We care not

How many there are

We値l get the food some way



They swoop and dance in awesome moves

Acrobats in the air

The Goldfinch is

Without a doubt

A favourite of mine I swear



Can稚 wait to see in later Spring

Mum and Dad bringing the kid

They値l be very welcome

At our place

And we値l always be glad they did

If I took a leaf out of the goldfinch's book, and perched where he has perched, I think the apple tree would collapseSad!

Wonderful quality image, Julia, and his colours are so striking.

A fabulous image of this handsome bird, such pin sharp detail and striking colours. I see that the Tomcat has started writing poems, too much time on his hands methinks!Wink
