The Color of Spring (a Haiku)

Warm weather not far

I was very surprised today, to see a goldfinch at my feeder with his new feathers. Most still have their drab winter look, but this one really lived up to his name. I could not pass up a chance for a good shot in the long rays of the afternoon sunlight. A good sign for sure, that spring is just around the corner. While out working in the yard, I saw one of the drab looking ones in the bush next to me. I could see his red tuft on top of his head that he uses to get the female’s attention.  They are amazing little creatures!
