Nature Watch: Goldfinches

Two goldfinches in the garden this morning, feasting on the seeds of Verbena bonariensis (another good reason not to cut down all your plants in autumn). I only mention it because it’s so unusual; I’m far more likely to see a deer or a rabbit than a goldfinch. Couldn’t get a photo, sadly.
