swinging goldfinch for mellow yellow monday

We have a pergola at the end of Bird Alley beside our sun room window. During the summer the top of the pergola is covered with Virgina Creeper. At this time of year there are many creeper vines hanging down from the pergola top. These vines are an invitation to all the little goldfinch which visit daily for I often see goldfinch fly towards a vine , land on it and then swing back and forth until the vine becomes motionless again with the goldfinch clutching the vine with its claws. ( I must try to get a video of this delightful behaviour.)
These little flying yellow fluff balls are a joy to watch swinging back and forth outside my window.

Got pictures with yellow? Why not post them on the mellow yellow Monday meme by connecting to this link.
