Goldfinches invade coneflower patch

Photo by Chris Bosak An American goldfinch looks for seeds atop a coneflower in New England, summer 2020.

I don’t have a lot of garden space on my property as it is predominately shaded. I do have a few sunny spots and I wasted no time in planting some native perennials, including coneflower. The goldfinches come every year when the flower heads start to die off. The goldfinches started arriving this week and have returned daily. There will be more photos of the goldfinches coming up soon, I’m sure.
