Goldfinch

Finch

Female Goldfinch

Now that our neighborhood is covered with snow, new visitors are showing up to feed. I hadn’t seen Goldfinches for several months until this week, when a small flock stopped by for a few days.

I’ve also enjoyed watching a Red-Bellied Woodpecker work on the suet alongside the Downy Woodpeckers, which have been regulars through the winter, and many more Dark-Eyed Juncos and sparrows are on the hunt for the seed dropped on the ground. The only birds conspicuously absent this winter have been the Cardinals, and I’ve missed their red plumage that brightens up these cold, gray days.
