American Goldfinch

American Goldfinch0593Ever heard a goldfinch giggle? The goldfinch giggle is a phenomenon that occurs when a world-class wilderness explorer is standing right next to a treasury of goldfinches and doesn’t even realize it. I’ve heard it many times. They can hardly contain themselves and eventually one of them lets out a little goldfinch snort and soon after that they are all flying away, giggling! Missing so many golden opportunities does not make me giggle. That pun however, does! Get it? Goldfinch? Golden opportunity? Wow, tough crowd!
