beach gold

Walking the beach Saturday at the -3.0 tide, the first bird we saw on the beach was… a pair of goldfinches. Only one in this picture. But there were two down enjoying the sun and the water and the seaweed. I don’t think of goldfinches as shore birds, but they didn’t seem to care what I thought….

  1. I agree, I never think of these birds as shore birds.

    I happened upon a goldfinch at the water’s edge recently too. Maybe they are changing their habits?

      ….I don’t know. I don’t know that much about their habits except that they fly in a wave pattern and that one song sounds like “potato chip”.
