Gold Finches

Glancing out our rather dirty patio window today I was delighted to see a couple of beautiful Gold Finches visiting the bird feeders again.  The murky wet and damp weather must have brought them in.

The photos aren't brilliant, I had to zoom in quite a bit to take the shots, and it is pretty gloomy out there, but they give a good idea of how pretty these birds are.

    1. Aren't they just lovely? They are becoming more regular visitors which is a delight.

  2. Fantastic photos what a joy to see such beautiful birds at the feeders.

  3. Your Goldfinches are SO much more colourful than ours!!! I am seriously envious. Especially this time of the year we seem to have very drab looking birds. The markings on yours are lovely.

    1. They really are stunning birds. We never really used to see any, but the last few months they have become much more regular visitors.

  4. Arn't these little birds just magnificent. We have a few of them around our place here in Te Kauwhata. Had never seen one until we moved here (last August)
