The last two weeks have shown us a beauty of nature that we rarely see.
Adult males in spring and early summer are bright yellow with black forehead, black wings with white markings, and white patches both above and beneath the tail. Adult females are duller yellow beneath. We normally don’t have them at our feeders or in the fields until late spring, early summer so this is a real treat.
Since they’ve arrived so early I’m hoping with all my heart that spring is truly just around the corner.
