Feeding on coneflower seeds

This goldfinch was feasting on the seed head of a purple coneflower.  When the stalks are left intact, they can enjoy coneflower seeds from summer into autumn.  Flower heads that are leftover can be cut and hung out for goldfinch to feed on during the winter.

“Whatever are the benefits of fortune, they yet require a palate fit to relish and taste them.”  ~Michel de Montaigne
