A goldfinch flock

A flurry of activity drew my attention this afternoon. Out the study window, I could see goldfinches on all three feeders (2 sunflowers and 1 thistle). There were at least three on each (I could see them better after picking up my binoculars!)

They were largely the dull color of winter, and this was the only shot I was able to get. Opening the door finds them scattering for cover, and a long view through the window is blurry at best.

Lots of people see large flocks at their feeders this time of year, but this is as many as I've seen before.


I enjoy hearing from fellow nature lovers and gardeners. Let me know your thoughts.
