A Flock of Goldfinches

DSC_5480

A  flock of Goldfinches arrived several days ago here in my neighborhood.  Our neighbor across the street here has recently put up a bird feeding station with great success, and another family behind them also has a feeder (the blue feeder shown).

The Goldfinches and other songbirds just love the Sunflower Seeds, a “Finch sock”, Dried Meal Worms, and a Suet block that are available at that neighbor’s feeder station.  The finches love the “Finch sock”, and the Black Oil Sunflower Seeds.  I think the small birds also like the tray feeder a lot.

These are the first Goldfinches I have spotted here in my new neighborhood.  I think they are a migratory flock just passing through and resting here a few days.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the slightly larger picture.  Enjoy!

  1. How special… I love our Goldfinches–especially this time of year when the males are getting their gorgeous colors.

    Hope you have an awesome Easter.
    Hugs,
    Betsy

    • Hi Betsy, Yes, we had a nice quiet Easter. It has been raining off and on for about three days now so we do a lot between storms. Nothing severe thank goodness. Birding has been exceptional this last week. Have a great week! Enjoy your yard and the golf course. I hope you are seeing deer.

  2. That’s a treat for you! I get a very few every summer and really enjoy them.

    • Hi Montucky, So happy you also have Goldfinches there in your area. I am so happy that we have these cuties here as visitors. They still are here enjoying that feeder (lots of other birds have found the new feeder, too). Have a great coming week!

  3. ours all left about a month ago.

  4. Hello, I only see a few Goldfinches here, some stay year round. Wonderful photos, they are so pretty. Happy Tuesday, enjoy your day!

    • Hi Eileen, They are beauties for sure. So happy you have some there. I am seeing a lot more songbirds here in the last two weeks. I also have a pair of soon-to-be nesting Red-bellied Woodpeckers in my oaks. Hooray! Have an especially nice coming week and thank you for all your great comments!
