I watched at least two dozen yellow finches as they waited on the ground below and took turns feeding on the bird seeds. They all stayed until some blue jays took over to get their share of the gourmet delight.
The yellow in the birds really stood out compared to the stark contrast of the remnants of fall’s brown leaves. Spring is a little slower and later in Tioga, but the birds and blooms hold promise of greener and warmer days coming soon. Doesn’t that feel great?
