Conversation With a Goldfinch

Greetings friends and fans. This is The Daily Bone and I'm your doggie reporter 
Chester L. W. Spaniel. I have a gold-plated story for you today!

I reported a couple weeks ago about a little gold finch who has been coming to the dining room window and pecking at his reflection. We didn't see him for a while. But now he's back! I tried to start a conversation with him.

Hey little birdie! What's your name? Why are you attacking your reflection? 

Who's that talking to me? (peck peck peck) Whoever you are, I'll have you know, this is my territory! I claim it in the name of myself, Goldson Fort-Knox! (peck peck peck peck) 

Hmmmm. I wonder if he can't see me, and thinks his reflection is talking to him? So I answered him. This is not your window! This is my window! I already claimed it in the name of Finchley Goldman-Sachs Esquire!

Oh yeah? Well I'll show you whose boss! (peck peck peck peck peck) Take that! (peck peck peck peck peck peck peck peck) 

Nobody challenges ME! (peck peck peck) Bwahahahaha! 

What a cheeky little fellow! Then, suddenly, he took off. Ghostwriter thinks he's probably attacking the rear view mirrors on the cars now. Must be related to Woodstock.


  1. BOL! He doesn't sound like a very smart birdie.

  2. Sheesh, squirrels, grackles, and now a cheeky goldfinch!!!

  3. What a delightful visitor--but not too bright.

  4. I think he wants to come inside and hang out with you, Chester!

  5. He is very pretty if slightly nutty birdie my darling Chester. I had a little Bluetit birdie do that to the mirror in my garden, he was so persistent the peeps had to cover the mirror up to stop the daft birdie!

  6. That goldie goldfinch has his own agenda for sure. He'll be pecking a different story when you meet him snout to beak out in the yard.

    Love and licks,

  7. We had a bluebird doing that to our windows for the past few years. Those birds sure can be nutty.

  8. BOL! What a silly little birdy!

  10. We have lots of those goldies here too, but here its the cardinals what attack their reflections.

    The goldies are all over the volunteer sunflowers now. Yellow birds on yellow flowers...Camoflauged for sure!
