We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Definitely goldfinches. We get them all year here in NE Ohio. They are beautiful in the summer when they become bright yellow. We have a feeder that requires them to hang upside down to feed. House finches, starlings, english sparrows, etc. cannot get access.
That's where they all went. My mother and I were commenting on how few goldfinches we'd seen here in Mid-Michigan this summer, where we usually have hoards of them from April to October. But this year, very few. At least when they were usually their yellow incarnations. Glad they're mostly safe elsewhere. Send them back next summer, though, if you would. We miss them terribly.
