Lookit! Gotcha! This small bird is antsy and I just couldn't get closer. I am soooo satisfied...

My neighborhood is loaded with bird song. I took a nice walk this morning and enjoyed the views and warm breezes. Along the way I caught some Gold Finches snacking in a neighbor’s yard. Hmmm. I wondered why they haven’t visited my yard…
I wanted to trespass and walk along the cart path. Prohibited! Those homes in the distance are way too large. We’re happy with our medium sized ranch home, thank you.
Well, guess who came to visit? As soon as I got home, a little Gold Finch was perched at the back of my yard. Made ma heart skip a beat! My once a month paycheck arrives in two weeks. I'm going to blow it on at least five more feeders. I only have one!
