Thesemale American Goldfinchesflitter around the feeders that we have at the back and front of our house. We use niger seed which they love. Extremely wary and timid wee birds it takes some time before they become accustomed to my presence, and even then, they still sometimes fly off at the sound of the camera shutter. I really enjoy listening to their song in the morning, afternoon and evening. Cheers, Dan

Those are beautiful birds, Dan. I think I've seen them here (NM) on the thistle feeder.

Very nice shots, Dan! I have all but given up on shooting these guys at my Dad's house where he has 2 of the 18 perch feeders. At any given moment, there may be a dozen or so finches hanging around. But you're absolutely right about them being timid, I think I have only gotten 2 shots of them in the last 2 years or so. But then, there is always tomooow!

I was wondering where they all went. You got some of them. Pretty much in breeding plumage, looks like.
