American Goldfinches, backyard feeder, Alexandria, VA. The birds have been hitting the feeders pretty hard these days. Yesterday we had a ruby-throated hummingbird (finally!), a red-bellied woodpecker, a carolina wren, a gray catbird, a northern mockingbird, a brown thrasher (on the deck, not the feeder), the pictured goldfinches, and a pair of cardinals. Today, we've also had all of the above except the thrasher and adding mourning doves, a female house sparrow and a downy woodpecker. Both also pictured below.
