It was overcast and the lighting wasn’t the best, but the goldfinches and the house finches were very active. They kept the feeder swaying and spinning as they shared it.

The house finch was originally only in the western U. S. but in 1940 several were released in New York. They have since spread across the rest of the country.

Goldfinches become brighter yellow in the spring and are a welcome sign of warm weather.

Both are very active at feeders in the winter months.
