The American Goldfinches that are cleaning out my niger feeder on a regular basis are starting to turn yellow! On a recent rainy weekend morning, I sat in my favorite upstairs window (“bird blind”) and photographed the little finches.
The finches will line up waiting for their turn at the feeder. When they change places, it’s amidst much fluttering. On this particular morning, they actually managed to squeeze six finches on a six-port feeder. What a rare occurrence! :)
