Are those goldfinches? Amazing how yellow birds can disappear in a bare tree!BTW, it has to be "one-word Wednesday" - it can't be wordless because you added a word. ;)
I always do, Alan ... I'm just a rebel like that.
They are so little and cute:) We have a ton of American Goldfinches and Lesser Goldfinches at our thistle feeder. I call them little piggies because they are eating constantly.
Yes! They polished off an entire feeder in two days! It has been cold though so they're extra busy!
Those goldfinches are amazing little buggers, aren't they? They winter up north here, too. They seem so unfazed by the cold and wind and gray of winter. It's wonderful to have them around when so many other birds migrate to warmer climes.
They must be tough ... I don't know that I could handle your winters :)
Yours retain more color than mine which look more olive green now...amazing how hardy birds are during winter.
I see few goldfinch here, but they are welcome anytime. Your group of them is darling.
I found five! Love this shot. I really had to look to see them. The finches here are already a bit greenish. But they're still cute! :o)
It took me a minute but then - ooooh. of course, there's one, two, three......
Great name for this post! At first I didn't see anything but rather attractive plant stems, the all of a sudden - there they were!Goldfinches are welcome visitors here in Mississippi.Have a great day!LeaLea's Menagerie
Hah! Now you see them, now you don't... Love it.
Took me a bit to see through the camouflage ...Wonderful views of your garden in winter.
I wouldn't have seen the goldfinches without your clue. Clever birds and photographer.
Even on bare branches, the birds manage to blend right in. Like many other commenters, it took me a moment to see them.
