In the fir: American Goldfinch

This summer a family of American Goldfinches has made their home in the fir trees nearby. Many a day have been brightened by their singing and the flight call as they move from treetop to treetop. A few weeks back we watched this male Goldfinch searching the ends of the branches in a tree with abundant fresh growth.

The trees were teaming with small caterpillars and this guy looks to have found a nice meal that afternoon.

Meal devoured and a victory pose well struck.

Have a wonderful weekend.
