I had 7 around my feeder today. Great photo. They fly off so quickly it can sometimes be hard to capture them on camera.

Martin, I think they may be Goldfinches.............

hard to tell from that photo.


Jacinta Jacinta 11 January 2011 21:48:57

Oh yea, good one Fran. A bit 'sleep-deprived' here. :)

They are a lovely bird.

Lots of them here going ding dust on the feeders great entertainment watching them.

Never heard that expression before, Geraldine.

Ding dust is when there is a sort of battle going on or someone is going flat out doing something, birds are always having mini skimishes over who's going on the feeders now.

Lovely. Must remember that.
