Lovely close up you are lucky to capture them, they fly off if I get to close for a decent photo. They love nigra seed and most of all they love sunflower hearts, I have them by the score in my garden take a look, they are all gold finches on the tree at the bottom of my garden. they fly down in 8s to feed.

You are both so lucky, Moti and 6d. I've only ever seen one in my garden - once - about fifteen years ago. :-((((

I wonder why that is Wagger...???...The only other food i put out recently is meal worms...trying to attract the little Robins...I shall have a look at your Goldfinches Sixp.....:>)

I think it's because their preferred habitat is scattered bushes, trees and rough ground (RSPB) and the woods here are too thick for them.

Thank you Motinot.
