Bird on Bloom by. The American Gold Finches are in mating season right now. The males are hitting the feeders at my windows pretty heavily. They need to build up their stamina and their beautiful color to compete.
Myself and fellow photographers hope to see these in abundance when seeds begin to ripen in the public gardens at Shelby Farms. Goldfinches, Buntings and Bluebirds love the sunflower seeds at this area. This one was enjoying the Zinnia pods.
