Goldfincher!

This evening was so clear, so nice, that we ate dinner on the deck. After dinner, a goldfinch flew into the screen door and got himself a little bit dazed. He fluttered on the deck helplessly, so I gently picked him up. He was incredibly tame, and he sat on my shoulder for ten minutes before finally regaining his wits and flying away.

It was a nice visit from one of my favorite birds! I felt like St. Francis of Assisi. But then Becky started singing the James Bond theme to Goldfinger... which had me cracking up.

That is such a sweet story, along with some great shots. Our goldfinches haven't returned yet. Maybe they heard that parts of Mn will get 6-12" of snow tonight!
