I have never seen (or heard!) so many goldfinches in my life. Multiple nests have fledged and my thistle feeder is the place to eat and get the latest goldfinch gossip. There were around 12 on the feeder this morning, but of course by the time I got the camera most had retreated, peeping squeakily from every tree and bush and flower in the area. It was most adorable!
Meanwhile, the gray squirrels have rediscovered the feeders and are making nuisances of themselves.
