When he sowed, some seeds fell by the way side, and the birds came and devoured them up...
St. Matthew 13: 4
Seven goldfinch, of the same feather
Came on the feeder to eat together.
The food they most like to devour
Are seeds from the sunflower..
Poetry by me, AJP
I replaced my previous entry for this one...I was lucky to capture seven American Goldfinch on the feeder at one time as that doesn't always happen to come out to that number and retrieved this picture from my archives.
This probably is the first time that I have used sepia for a bird picture but there happened to be some reflective distractions from the window glass that caused splotches of red to appear
on the colored version and figured it would be less distracting to convert it into this tone instead...The male goldfinch that time of the year when I shot this picture in November lose their bright golden color and turn olive...the male and female consequently look similar when this occurs.
