I'm so glad you had a good finch morning. About 5 miles to the southeast, we, too, had an abundance of finches. I tried to count the goldfinch by fives and got to ~135. We had 2 Pine Siskin that I noted. One and probably two Fox Sparrow sang as I fed the birds. Plus, one Purple Finch and two Song Sparrow and about a dozen juncos and 4-5 Tree Sparrow at the feeders.
We have a pair of Red-bellied W. coming in to our suet and recently a Pileated has been drummiong and coming to the suet. We hope he succeeds in attracting a mate.
It doesn't feel like spring, bu it sounds like spring.

Good morning, We've had alot of goldfinches at the feeders over the past week and today the number is close to 100, including 7 PINE SISKINS. The noise is wonderful.
