Summer finch meets winter finch

Post by drmoss_ca » Fri Mar 29, 2019 9:47 am

An "American" goldfinch just coming through moult and beginning to develop full yellow breeding colours looks down on his northern cousin, a common redpoll, who himself had no red breast ten days ago. It's fascinating how quickly seasonal colours can change. Last winter I watched a snowshoe hare in the garden go from white to brown in about ten days.

on the subject of birds, over the the last week or so the garden is filling fast and furiously with them.....what a magical time. Also, the insects etc are starting to get their act together. Last night for the first time since last year I opened the window at bedtime. What a symphony. My partner is in vegas for a cher concert. I sent a text with a 10 second clip saying cher will never sound as good as this...i truly believe it.

Clive, yes, a beautiful time. I love Spring except for the bugs, they can go to hell for all I care.
