A pair of American Goldfinch males, Spinus tristis, on the Niger Feeder. The whole yard was in shadow with the sun going down except for a beam of light, highlighting these two birds! It was quite amazing!

Goldie

A dominant American Goldfinch (Spinus tristis) male perched on a branch. I say dominant becuase he spends half his day chasing away other Goldies from the feeders in our yard!


Pretty in Purple

Here’s another LBJ (little brown job) all puffed up against the cold wet weather. ┬áThis time a Pine Siskin, looks quite displeased with the whole issue. ┬áNever mind, it’s getting warmer later this week!
