Photo Share: Late bloomers

Most of my goldfinches have completed their spring molt and males are now bright yellow and jet black. I've only seen a couple late bloomers that are holding some of their darker brown winter feathers.

Now that their molting is finishing up and the dandelions are blooming, you'll see the frenzy at the feeders die down a little until the goldfinches begin to nest in the late summer.

Thank you Mark for sharing your photos! If anyone else would like to share a photograph of nature send it to bloubird@gmail.com with a description and permission to post it on the Friday Photo.
