Miserable, rainy weather this weekend... bleak. Like this:
However, the Goldfinches are here with a vengeance, and some of the little fellows are beginning to yellow up nicely. If you like, compare the photo below with the one from last weekend. By the time breeding season rolls around (and these little birds breed later than other species), the males will all be striking in splendid bright yellow and black trim.
I tried to take a picture of some grackles, but the results were miserably out of focus. Next time, perhaps.
In other news, the spring crop of sports cars is not quite under way, although a banana-yellow Mustang GT made an appearance yesterday, as did a Porsche 944 and a couple of Boxsters. People drive Mustangs and Porsches year-round here though, so nothing really unusual there.
