Finches

Some goldfinches are chasing each other around the thistle sock.  :D  I saw at least two males and one female.  There may be more.  One of the males is looking a little smudgy, so they might be starting to moult.  The body is bright yellow in summer and dull olive in winter.  The wings and tail keep their black-and-white coloring throughout.
