Goldfinches Fledging

The goldfinches are among the latest nesters around here. This is a male goldfinch feeding a fledgling at the sunflower chip feeder.

They make a special Gold Finch feeder for thistle seed. The Gold Finch can eat hanging upside down but the House Finches can't. Gives the Gold Finches a fighting chance over their bigger cousins that chase them away from the feeders. Put one up and they'll be coming back for years
