Day 238 of 365

A Goldfinch hit a window today and was laying unconscious on the front step. I warmed him in my hands for about 10 minutes (and admired his incredible beauty). I was so relieved when he eventually flew away.
The Goldfinches have just migrated back, and I saw the first one yesterday - a good sign that summer is here.


  1. Thank goodness you were there, what a beautiful post! Thank you Joanne for sharing this.

  2. Aren't their colours so beautiful when you see them so closely? It would have been a sad start to its summer if you hadn't been there.

  3. Waouw, such a great adventure and a lovely picture. Thank you for sharing.
