The male goldfinch who never lost his summer breeding plumage that I reported back in November is still alive and well. I just saw him at the thistle feeder a few minutes ago and he is as bright yellow and black as if it were early summer! He never molted into his winter plumage and has so far survived being spotted by any predators!! What a beauty against the leafless trees!
