Finch Feast...

American Goldfinch:  the males are bright yellow in summer, but in winter both male and females are drab, unstreaked brown, with blackish wings and two pale wingbars. Goldfinches are strict vegetarians and during the summer they prefer the seeds from my coneflowers and zinnias, now that it's winter they'll settle for the thistle-seed at my feeders...

  1. Lovely pictures! I've never had much luck with ours eating nyjer from mesh bags, but at least the starlings can't use their two feeders!

  3. By far the most numerous birds at our feeders during the winter. I just wished so many of the Goldfinches didn't head further north during the summer.
