My favvie favorite!

I have noticed some of ours aren't around lately, perhaps because it was 45 degrees when I got up this morning?

These are two are the greatest finch pics I have ever seen. Well done, you take incredible pictures and it is such a joy to visit your blog. Thank you for sharing THESE!

You know how much I love goldfinches...and your pictures are so amazing. It's really nice to see Mr and Mrs at once...your photos make their differences perfectly clear (better than the bird book I use).

Susie said...

Hi Karen,

Your shots of the Goldfinches are very special--such close-ups can be hard to get! But where is their thistle seed? Oh, btw, do you use any special brand of thistle to attract them to your feeders?
