~true bird fact~ Lesser Goldfinches eat mostly seeds. They are especially fond of thistle and sunflower. A common feeding posture is hanging upside down from the tip of such a plant and picking the seeds out.
§A Charm of Goldfinches§
Both pretty and smart, doesn't really seem to understand how lucky she is
Not afraid to reach for lofty goals
Distrustful of altruism
Loves the sunrise and sunset
Blames the rare failure on 'haters'
