If you follow this blog, you are aware that my favourite subjects for miniatures are birds. At this time of year the male American Goldfinches are moulting from their muted Winter coats and emerging as the amazingly-yellow, black and white stunners they are in Summer months.
They, and the other Finches and Juncos, are the overwhelmingly-frequent users of our feeders in the big Red Maple in our yard.
Because songbirds are so precious and lively and lovely, I feel compelled to ask you to please link onto this story from ‘The Guardian’: http://www.guardian.co.uk/science/grrlscientist/2012/mar/21/2
[Be warned: this is NOT a feel-good article--but it is an important one]
