This weekend, Mom's birdfeeders were filled with gold and purple finches. I was able to capture a few of them sitting pretty:
The goldfinches have, for the most part, returned to their brilliant yellow summer coloring, but many still had olive-drab patches.
In a few more days, these branches will be obscured by the emerging leaves of the chestnut tree they are perching on. I was lucky to get the shots while I could!
