American Goldfinch.
Purple Finch. Check out that touch of pink in the throat.
Not seen in this one. (That’s a sunflower seed-still-in-shell, not a tongue.)
Pine Siskins, and more sunflower seeds. Bit of a challenge for these fine bills, but the Siskins are swarming around the feeders in Dell Water. It’s an extraordinary year for Siskins down here… meaning it’s a bad year up there.

    Love them, though some time they can be not easy to ID here in non-breeding season.
    Great photo and blog
