I was sitting outside today, on the ground, taking pictures of flowers when several goldfinches made their way to the feeder. I had so much fun taking picture after picture of these delightful creatures.
The maple tree had red buds and the gorgeous blue sky was a perfect backdrop for the finches. After so many dreary and gloomy days it was wonderful to see all of this color. It was almost sensory overload.
The bluebird came back and chased away the house sparrow, but neither have started building a nest yet. Several people suggested that I get another nesting box, I'll have to try that and see if it works. Thank you!
The ducks have become faithful visitors and show up everyday to eat sunflower seeds. While I was sitting at the computer today I glanced out the window and saw a cat creeping across the yard. I knew my duck visitor was in the yard because I had just taken some pictures of her eating. I flew down the stairs and ran outside to chase it away. Thankfully, the duck got away.

Today was a beautiful day with temperatures in the mid-sixties. I have flowers blooming and it finally feels like spring. I'll show my blooms later.
