Goldfinch



When we were visiting my cousin in Herefordshire a few months ago we saw what to us seemed an amazing sight: a large flock(50+) of goldfinch around her feeder. This inspired us to puchase a new feeder and some niger seed. Today for the first time we noticed a pair of goldfinch visiting the feeder. One of the pair pictured above has more white around the head than is shown in our books, we can only imagine that it is a fairly young bird. The other of the pair showed no white on the forehead.
