I know this seems sort of morbid but I saw this dead bird and immediately noticed how yellow it is. The only birds I ever saw with yellow feathers were tropical birds in photographs. Pretty little bird. First yellow bird I ever seen with my eyes.

Laying there on a picnic bench, must've eaten something poisonous.

Looks like a young Finch.

I'm saying a prayer right now for the lil thing. Don't worry. All birds go to heaven to keep crapping on us.

Thanks. If there's one there's more. I thought it sort of looked young but couldn't be too sure.

I buried the bird in this planter, the only soil in the area. Two brown sparrows showed up for the proceedings.

It's a goldfinch. The males get real jazzy in spring to attract the ladies. There are "purple" ones too (more dusky red, really). They love thistle seed. Put some in a little feeder outside your window and you'll see lots of them.

Poor little bird. But its yellow IS pretty striking.
