The Sound of a Flock of Goldfinches

Today as I was driving the 4-wheeler down the driveway to go check the mail, I heard the sound of a thousand birds in the trees. Maybe I’m exaggerating, but maybe not. It was a big crowd of noisy American goldfinches flitting around the treetops by the gate.

A few days ago I saw a few male goldfinches, but not a whole bunch. The rest of the gang must have migrated over since then.

Listen to the Goldfinches
