The Mellow Yellow Finches

These little guys began appearing in my yard last week. I have two of these feeders and they have been filled three times since last Tuesday! My feathered friends have been very hungry.

Looks like they came to the perfect place to eat.

How very beautiful they are! I have one of those feeders and no one eats out of it. I must be doing something wrong. I don't see any finches though, just ground feeders. You got it just right!

I used to have a lot of feeders but they were eating me out of house and home. The Starlings moved in so the feeders moved out!!! I really miss the finches they are so beautiful and you took a wonderful photo. Thanks for sharing. Happy Monday.

Great shot, so clear - these little birds are so pretty and in a few short weeks they will be even prettier as they (well, the boys) turn bright yellow!

Looks like spring is in the air :)

They are going to eat you out of house and home! Isn't it amazing how much they do go through...lovely picture of them.

Awww! GOOD shot! I've got a million of 'em too! I don't get a good angle on my thistle feeders though...

What lovely finches! My neighbor has feeders, but the only birds we're seeing now are sparrows and crows, though a few hummingbirds hang out in my citrus trees.
Hugs and blessings,

Yellow finches, Carletta! How lucky to have them visit you! Happy Mellow Yellow Monday! :)

Raven said...

So beautiful! And once again I find myself green with envy. There seems to be a photo drought here in Hancock... or in my head. Not sure which but it comes out the same... no pictures.

And they are a very mellow yellow.

Kathy said...

oh what cute little birds. We have a bird feeder but the birds are afraid to eat from it because the neighbors cats stay hovered around near by.

Tarolino said...

Lovely birds and a great shot. They are hungry for love I think.

Craver Vii said...

Pretty birds. If they keep eating like that, they lose their chirp. Instead, their call sounds something like: "Here, kitty-kitty."

heh heh

I've only seen one of the yellow finches here in the past few weeks. Maybe more will come.
I love the blue on the feeder. It really adds to the picture.

Sometimes they eat more than we can supply.

Wow those birds look so cute! I wish that I could have a bird feeder in my back yard. Maybe I should buy one. There are a lot of blue jays and sparrows that fly around my home.
