The Goldfinches are getting 'golder' and 'golder' these days.

The Goldfinches were a colorful sight at the feeder today.

These finches like black oil sunflower seed.

At times, it got rather "scrappy".

Just so much 'standing room'

The Cardinal won't come close to the feeder or my camera while I am standing on the porch.

I thought the Junkos had left for a more northern nesting ground; maybe this couple likes it here. Junko pair

Junkos are ground feeders also.  I've never seen one at the feeder. They feed on spilled seed.

Speaking of ground feeders...


The squirrels clean up some of the seeds that the birds drop from the feeder above.


Some birds will sit at the feeder and eat several seeds.  The Titmouse always takes its seed away up into the branches, where it opens the shell and eats the meat, then comes back for more.


The Titmouse never drops a seed.

The House Finches are frequent visitors to the feeder

They appear to say, "Do you think it's safe to eat while he's there?"

I have yet to see the Indigo Bunting this year. I have heard of only two locations around here where the Indigo Bunting can be seen, and this picture taken in a previous year is of one of those 'secret locations'.  It's color is a wonder to experience, and I am looking forward to seeing it again within the next week or two.

I was glad to see even just one honey bee today.  They are becoming too rare. This one was hopping from one crocus to another.

In another town today, I noticed this new storefront. What goes here, I wonder?
