Snowy Goldfinches

Today's one of those beautiful snowy days where the snow is continually falling and blowing around. Our feeders are packed and I thought I'd take the opportunity to snap a couple goldfinch photos:

They remind me of my grandma. Seriously. She had this old fur coat that she used to bundle up in the winter and it was the exact tawny color of the goldfinches at this time of year. She was really petite, only 4'9", and she'd tuck her head down in it and shiver. Funny how some things just pull up memories...

There are a couple goldfinches that haven't quite lost all their "gold" yet:

Hope you and your backyard friends are having a great start to 2015!
