"Hi Jack, I'm Annette . .

. . You're doing it wrong."

For some reason, that line from the '80s classic Mr. Mom is what came to mind this evening when I spied this dapper young male Goldfinch investigating my hummingbird feeder.

I'm sure he's thinking to himself, "Those hyper little hummingbirds sure seem to like this stuff, I wonder what all the fuss is about?"

"Pretty sure this is how it works . . damn, what am I doing wrong?"

Whoa, that's cool! I've never seen an American Goldfinch take an interest in nectar before.

And you've been on quite a photo roll as of late--long may it last!
