Finally was able to snap a few pictures of the little yellow canary or gold finch. Have been trying for awhile now as they sit and eat the sunflower seeds. Guess they can not wait until I take them off and give them to them in the fall!!!! So I would hear them chirping and would run and get the camera and whoosh off they would fly. Byt today I had success. SMILE..... They are quite the little clowns.


  1. Both those pics are cool

    I just had a family of finches visit
    A few are red, males, other have basic grey

    I do get a family of American Gold Finches too .. not today though

    I need to get my camera & take some photos

    Maybe next week when I'm feeling better

  2. A few years ago we had sunflowers planted - by the birds at the feeder! They grew tall and large, and I really loved sitting on the patio and watching the birds, mostly sparrows with a few finches, feeding off them. I love urban nature!

  3. I love it when the goldfinches ride the sunflower sweet. Great shot!
