Goldfinches in the Meadows

| Comments (0)

This morning as I entered a wildflower meadow, I was greeted by a large flock of Goldfinches.  I did not see them as I approached, for their camouflage blends perfectly with the masses of Black Eyed Susan’s and Coreopsis.  They rose in a single mass, hundreds of yellow and black birds, and began circling the meadow, only to roost in a different location.  While there is a host of wildlife that rely on the meadows for cover and sustenance, there may be nothing in the world more beautiful than a Goldfinch resting upon a Black Eyed Susan.  –A beautiful observation by our wildlife meadow consultant, Ed Yates, at a meadow designed, installed and maintained by JWT in Albemarle County.
