The male American Goldfinches are so brightly colored in the summer. They visit the feeders with black oil sunflower seeds. You can see a seed in the mouth of one Goldfinch in the collage below.
Maybe the finch doesn't like the Downy Woodpecker on the hummingbird feeder.
Anyway the finch is taking off.
Not many hummers are visiting my feeders but this little guy is stopping by for a drink.
The chipping sparrow is a ground feeder so doesn't visit the feeders but comes around to the deck floor. The black line through the eye is very visible and the rusty crown make him easy to identify.
The Grackles mostly eat on the ground below my feeders. The will come up and eat at the suet feeders and the black oil sunflower feeders. In the pic, you can see some of the blue-green sheen on his neck.
I usually don't capture two Red-bellied Woodpeckers in the same shot but got lucky here.
The Red-bellied is fussing at the little Downy coming up the tree.
The Northern Cardinal is always a delight to watch. Love their visits.
Thanks for stopping by - Judy.
