  3. That is quite the acrobatic goldfinch, Linda. I love the bright yellow on the males. It has turned cloudy here - first time in almost 3 weeks! and we will hopefully get some showers later today. The weekend was sunny and warmish (I found the wind chilly). Have a great week. I hope you get some sunny days. xx Pam

    1. I have no idea Kris, as the weather is not co-operating!!

      Think I will clean out my drawers! Fun,eh??

  6. beautiful!
    except
    what a frustrating bird feeder. they can see it. but the little tiny slit is so narrow
    they have to have the patience and ability to place the silly seed just right to get it outta there!
    nope.
    LOL! well. my apologies. i must have just been feeling grumpy!
    i just read all the other comments and it's apparently a finch feeder and quite usual.
    so i guess finches are up to the challenge and the seeds are tiny enough! how clever!
    grump over!!! :) XOXO♥

  7. Love yellow goldfinches, so pretty. I helped place a bird feeder when just visiting my son and family in their summer house on Long Island. Not that I'm an expert, but they had hung it very low on a fence, difficult for birds to land and eat. So, a tall tree branch was the solution! Hope it works! Have a good week and don't clean out too many drawers! :)

    1. Very good Hester! I am certain the girls will love it, and see lots of birds...
      How lucky to have a summer house....you can visit when the weather is hot!

  10. Oh Wow, what a gorgeous little yellow bird - one I have never seen. He looks funny and energetic too. My boyfriend goes away on business now and then - that is when I clean out cupboards and get rid of stuff (and he doesn't see it, he he). Enjoy your week Linda.

  14. I could even hear the long drum roll before he did his flip! Ta Da!! ((heavy applause)) What an athlete!
    Funny story ... once I was trying to get OUT of Mississauga, and I ended up driving right into the "Arrivals" at the airport!! Since I pick my brother up lots from the airport, it was only then that I finally knew how to get back home ;)
    Enjoy your free week, and let's hope the sun continues shining like it did this evening rather than the predicted rain.

  16. Your pictures make me want to go out and buy a new finch feeder. The raccoons ripped apart my old one and I just didn't replace it. I love the finch's song. (I see that you are a Coronation Street watcher, too) -Jenn
