A backyard shot from the past weekend. At least 30 or more Goldfinches showed up, 6 Pine Siskins and at least 12 Common Redpolls - they would not come down to the feeder though as the birch cones were too good to leave. I wish I could have got the entire niger seed feeder in the frame as there were Pine Siskins on the perches (out of the frame) above the Goldfinches! I almost forgot how greedy Siskins are, as they would chase away the Goldfinces to get the best seat at the buffet! All these songbirds quickly drew the attention of a Sharp-shinned Hawk that narrowly missed my head as it attempted to snag some finches perched above me.
