our feeder sometimes has as many as 10-12 goldfinches flitting back and forth. i love these bright, happy little creatures.
all the following were shot by my daughter, erin. she was sitting closer to the feeder and grabbed my camera.
although they're not quite as clear, i'm pleased with how well these next photos turned out. it was nearing dusk and i was using my zoom lens.
a pretty little house finch.
this red bellied woodpecker is a frequent visitor.
