The Goldfinch and the Sunflower Posted on 16th June 2014 by Robin Lesvos is famous as a destination for birdwatchers. Right outside our window, we have a 2.6 metre tall sunflower. Every day a pair of Goldfinches come to pull juicy young seeds from the flowers. Lunch for them, lunchtime entertainment for us. Please share with your friends. By Robin on 16th June 2014.
