We've struck gold!


The goldfinches have arrived in NE Texas and are filling up at the feeders and baths until they continue further south.  Love these tiny guys! 


They developed the original "twitter".  Their voices and calls are so sweet.  I love when they head through Texas in spring and in fall.

So that's where ours went :) I put a feeder up a few months ago and just yesterday I saw some at it. I hope they'll stay this winter.

How sweet! I love feeding the birds in the winter,looking out my kitchen window and seeing them at the feeder just makes me smile!

We have goldfinches that do stay over the winter -- but their numbers have diminished at the feeders since we planted our CRP ground. I think they prefer wild seeds to store-bought. Can't blame them! Lovely photos, girl. I'm looking forward to more birdie pics over the winter, as our birds fly to your location. :)

They are just beautiful! We have little blue,red and brown finches that fly into the chicken coop every day.

Such sweeties! In answer to your question, yes I do teach at our local small town school. I teach special needs children for grades K-1. I don't really talk about it on my blog due to confidentiality issues. But, I love my job so much!

I just love gold finches. I think I recognize one of these guys from my feeder this summer. Tell him I said hello :)

That is such an interesting bird feeder. I've never seen one like that. Is it specifically for finches or are they common in Texas all around?

Love those birds and that is a very unusual feeder.

The feeder is actually a "home-assembled" one I put together. I had the bottom metal plate piece left over from a broken feeder. I rigged up the wires to make it a hanging plate. The birds actually like it so I've kept it going now for quite a while. :)
