We have had so much fun watching the goldfinch feeding at our window that we added a 2nd feeder and tonight made them a perch to play on along with a birdbath. The birds were on it as soon as I walked away from the window after hanging it.

VERY nice, Triss!
I bet they appreciate all your efforts!
They have no idea how much joy they give us, while we provide for them too.

Looks like the feeders are suctioned onto the window?

Yes they are with hooks that hang out a ways from the window so they are not right up against it.

Here are the birds tonight.

Awesome pictures Triss! [clappy] I love seeing the Goldfinch at my feeders [Love] and their color reminds me of 'Dicky Bird', a canary I had as a child. [Love] I don't have a very good zoom on my camera so I can't get close-up pictures like that. [tears] Thanks for sharing the pictures with us! [kissies]

Glad you like them. The kids are having so much fun watching them everyday. We have had as many as 8 at the feeders this week.

Those are MALE American Goldfinches, Triss. The females lack the black head patch.

A bird in the hand......can sometimes be a mess.

Hi there Thorny and welcome back. Yes, I have no pics right now of the females though they are at the feeders as much as the males are.
