A Sweet Goldfinch

dsc_1655

This Goldfinch was the lone bird at my neighbor’s tray feeder.  By the way, I believe the bird is a hen.  It was a windy morning so I did not see many songbirds at all other than the finch and an all-too-quick male Northern Cardinal that escaped before I could get its picture taken.

My neighbor had a triple feeder set-up which is very good as it offers a variety of different seeds and feed to suit the needs of different birds.  Some love Niger, and some love Sunflower while still others like Milo.  The finch loves the Niger and also the Milo.  Some also will take broken sunflower seeds. I took the pictures on Dec. 18, 2016.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the slightly larger version of the picture.  Enjoy!
