Female American Goldfinch Molting

The goldfinches are molting right now, which results in a rather ragged look to them.  In a few weeks, the males will once again be bright yellow and black, and the females will gain more yellow feathers.  It's a fascinating change and another sign of spring.

Honey Locust Dawn

I'm alive- Yes, it's been a while.  I needed the break.  And I haven't been idle.  Megan and I took the boys to Orlando for a week in late February.  We didn't even go to Disney World, but we did spend plenty of time with Megan's parents, and the boys love being with 'Bah and Gram.
