Once again the flock of Goldfinches has increased. There can be as many as twenty arriving by 7 a.m. and by the sound of chattering in nearby trees they stay until it is time to roost for the night. Not the sharpest of photos as they were taken early one dull morning.
A mixture of ages can be seen. The youngest still have the speckling on the breast. Those slightly older have the brownish chest tint while the adults have the red on their heads.
The first was enhanced using Paint Shop Pro's auto enhancement facility and the second was enhanced using the Redyamix plug in.
