This male goldfinch was a character over labor day weekend. He was not only bold in color but in attitude as well. When we drove up to the driveway we saw him eating from the feeder. He flew to the barbed wire fence and waited patiently for us to go inside. When he came back to the feeder I had grabbed my camera. He was caught with a sunflower seed in his beak.
Afterwards my husband and daughter went outside to throw their new Nerf football. The goldfinch returned. He tried to eat more seeds when the football came hurling about a foot away from the feeder. Needless to say he wasn't happy with them. He squawked at them and flew around their heads letting them know he wasn't happy he couldn't eat his dinner in peace.
