American Goldfinches

American goldfinches like to flock together at the north end of the pond at Bassett Creek Park.  They perch on the large pussy willows and other brush that grows by the shore.

Pictured at right are some of the females, who aren't quite as brightly colored as the males.

These finches also enjoy snacking on sunflower seeds from our backyard feeder. As you might imagine, a flock of them can go through a lot of seeds quickly.
