Little Finche’s that arrive in busy flocks and vanish just as quickly!
In the middle of all the sparrows was this brightly coloured little bird, flocking to the extra feed I put out during the ice storm to get a welcome snack. You can see the ice pellets on it’s feathers.
Often in the flock with the goldfinches, a little shyer although the feeder is a favourite place to be.
It was one cold day near Chatsworth, I was visiting a friend with a busy feeder and I couldn’t resist getting my camera. They were soooo cute all fluffed up in the cold.
