We are not so different, you and I

My husband jokingly called this a potato bird.  Interestingly, that name quite appropriately embodies the idea that tickled my cortex into making this quilt.  I recently read a short National Geographic article on gene mapping.  We humans share a whopping 24% of our genes with the wine grape.  The chicken shares 65% of our human genetic make up.  I can only imagine that this little Goldfinch and the Yukon Gold potatoes nestled beneath it, have quite a lot in common.
