Goldfinch Study

Goldfinch Study/ oil on board/ 6" x 6"/$125

Late this winter, we had an entire flock of goldfinches stay in our yard and eat at the bird feeders, At times, there were 50 -100 little birds diving to and from three feeders of sunflower seed. As the days grew warmer and longer, the winter greens of the males changed to bright sunny yellow plumage and the little birds seemed to know it was time to move along: all except one pair. Perhaps, the same pair that stayed year, brightened the summer garden and invited their friends and families to visit this winter.
