We haven't seen a large variety at our feeders this winter but we have seen numbers. Daily our nyger seed feeder has been attended by manyAmerican Goldfinch. A Goldfinch is still pretty and attractive even during the winter months. The males still retain a bit of their gold and the females in their winter drab are pleasant to look at in their muted browns. I am expecting to see more colour as spring approaches and my first photo, below, taken just last week I call Golden Goldfinch and the sunlight upon the rafters of the pergola adds to the background colour..
Above , colourful red American Bittersweet berries create a colourful background for the feeding Goldfinch.
