Gold Found in Cohoes, NY!!!

Goldfinches that is....But just as valuable to me! It's just another busy morning at the feeders under the pine trees...Here we have a young male goldfinch, a sparrow and a mourning dove enjoying the peace and quiet....
These pictures were shot from a distance, thru a glass window and screen, so please forgive the grainy look.... This is a female goldfinch. She is a yellow, olive green color

Here is her partner, a gorgeous bright lemon yellow male. I love their little black caps too...

Great pictures, Mare! I just started noticing the goldfinch pairs around here about a week ago- they pass through here very quickly this time of year. I love to hear their little "squeaking" sounds, don't you?

Thanks Melissa! And Paula, you're right! They do make those high pitched squeaking noises, don't they???
