AMERICAN GOLDFINCHES AT REYNOLDA GARDENS IN NORTH CAROLINA

One of the nicest memories from our trip to Reynolda Gardens, apart from being among all the flowers and the butterflies, which will be in tomorrow's post, was the sight of these pretty American Goldfinches enjoying the sunflowers.
Gregg took all of what you see today.  He didn't have long as they were soon off into the trees, but he was able to get several photos in a short space of time.

There are two Goldfinches in the photo below...
and there were several in the garden.  They really loved those sunflowers.

Enjoy your day and thanks for stopping by.

  3. Our goldfinches are not a bit like yours but I love them both because they are both so beautiful. Two visit my garden every morning, looking for food.

    1. They certainly are Red, I don't get to see them too often though I know they are around. I had a few out back here no doubt heading south.

    1. Thank you Cloudia, I had fun putting it together. I will thank Gregg. The one thing I remember about our last trip to California were the humming birds. A sweet memory as your Goldfinches must be to you :)

  14. Just a fabulous garden altogether. They really are pretty and sweet birds... I used to see them when we lived at the Lake, but haven’t got a good sighting since then.
