So far April has been cold and snowy.
But Mr. Goldfinch’s drab gray feathers continue to give way to his yellow courting plumage.
This afternoon it’s 31 degrees with 17 mph winds, and, yes, there’s a windchill.
But Mr. Goldfinch believes summer is coming–his feathers are more yellow today than yesterday.
Two to four inches of snow are predicted for Sunday night.
With her back to Mr. Goldfinch, Mrs. Goldfinch is waiting until he has all his yellow feathers.
Perhaps she’s not sure about summer’s arrival.
