A late afternoon surprise!

Walking through the meadow late this afternoon, I startled a group of goldfinches who were feasting on thistle. They twitter to one another that I am there and scurry to the trees till I have passed. The thistle blooms are a reminder to me that it is nesting time for them. Check this website to hear their song and learn more: http://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/American_Goldfinch/lifehistory
