First Backyard Goldfinch of Fall 2010!

Right on schedule, we had our first American Goldfinch in the backyard today. I wasn’t home (I was chasing otters at the Circle B Bar Reserve, more on that tomorrow!) … but Rich assures me that there was indeed a goldfinch on the niger feeder this morning. He stayed for several minutes at least. Yay! The goldfinches are my favorite wintertime bird (closely followed by the warblers).

I didn’t see the little guy when I got home, so I’m posting my “first sighting” picture from last year…
