American Goldfinch for Mellow Yellow Monday

This is a daily view for us of the many American Goldfinch clustered around our Niger seed feeders constantly feeding and flitting about and it is not only my husband and I watching out our windows. Our black cat Shakey delights with his view from the windows. His tail wags and his teeth chatter.! He has anticipations un-fulfilled as he has hunting dreams,

From October to March the non-breeding females are hanging around

in their seasonal feathered garb of dull brown.

With coverts of yellow , the non-breeding Goldfinch fellows help brighten the scene

through my window pane

until spring returns again.

Got pictures with yellow? Why not post them on the mellow yellow Monday meme by connecting to this link.

If your plan is not to post a photo, then perhaps you will just want to enjoy all of the yellow contributions posted there.

My feline fur-children would be in heaven with such a daily show. I love to see birds I have only seen in illustrations ... we do not have this variety of birds in Central TX!
