Known as the “Distelfink” or “Thistle-Finch” is the German name for the European Goldfish. In PA it means Happiness & Good Fortune from the early PA German people. A brightly colored bird that is found on some old barns in or around my area. This one was at the Berks County History Center not far from my Home.
This is where the bird comes from. This is what you see on some old barns.
Thanks for stopping by.

I am 75 yrs. young and now retired. I worked in the Machinist Trade for 24 yrs. Served in the US Navy with a Tour of Duty in Vietnam. Being retired I do enjoy Photography with my Nikon and Pentax Camera's, snooping around in Historic and Abandoned places, using my Scroll Saw, Reading, Travel, riding a bicycle on the many Trails that are around my area, and what-ever else will interest me at the time. Come with me and see where I go, where I have been, and my Life surviving Retirement.
