The Goldfinches are Back

It’s just turned February and the feeders are under attack by a dozen or so Goldfinches, which we haven’t seen in months. They are pretty good at hovering while they wait their turn at a feeding post while others wait in the nearby trees. I caught this guy waiting on a branch in a brisk breeze.
I had to crop the picture pretty dramatically to get this framing and pump up the vibrance and reduce the noise a bit to reach this final.
