Hi Linda, I didn't even know they were goldfinches or that they turned color.  I did see some mysterious birds on the fence that were yellow, but they aren't here often.  We see Blue Jays, Cardinals and doves mostly.

What a beautiful picture of the goldfinches. I don't know where mine went. I've kept Niger seed out all winter and even now but haven't seen any here since they turned from the olive green.

Hi Edie, it looks like Meadoes has lots of information here on chat rooms so she can check it all out when she gets back to the porch.  Thanks for looking into it for her.

This is what I found on Answers.com concerning chat rooms. The closest I come to it is with the instant messaging.

Linda

An online discussion forum for a particular topic via keyboard (see chat). Everyone who is logged in sees what everyone else is typing, although two people can decide to break off and have a private chat.

Individual Chat Sessions

Chat rooms hosting general discussions often run continuously; however, chat sessions between two parties are often initiated as needed for customer service. If a Web site hosts a chat support line, it lets a user initiate a session and interact with a representative at the other end. However, that person is often helping several people, and responses are not usually immediate.

The Internet Relay Chat (IRC)

Chat rooms began in the late 1980s over the Internet and even earlier via the dial-up bulletin board (BBS). Today, a hundred or so channels in the original Internet Relay Chat (IRC) system continue while thousands remain idle (see IRC). See Internet forum, instant messaging, SMS and voice chat.

Pat,

I think Jonibee's description of a chat room may agree with my son's description of a chat room. That is, it being a "general"  term for different types of one-on-one direct electronic communications.  Just a thought.

Joni that's an interesting concept, maybe that is what Meadoes is asking about.

Edie that is good to know about and isn't it nice to have a son who can help out with questions, here we have our twenty-two year old grandson with all the answers.  Our daughter in Cape Cod also sent a skype to our middle daughter so her family can connect with her.  Our youngest and her family live here, so when Nancy does call us on Skype the whole household gets in the act!  You can also take photos with Skype.  I can't believe our Nancy will be 49 this summer!
