I spent some time with the backyard birds again this weekend. I'm always adjusting feeders, food, props, etc. to either attract new birds, or get birds in the best possible light.
I am super thankful I have a ton of Goldfinches at the feeders this year. For whatever reason, I've not had them in the past.
This is one of the male goldfinches. I may literally have a dozen or more of them at my feeders and/or logs at any given time. They are always pretty active, so chances are they will end up in a good light spot. This was taken in early morning, golden light.
