A Busy Day On The Feeders

After all that rain Thursday/Friday which zipped up Northwards and turned into snow over New England its cold and breezy here. Cold enough to bring birds to the feeders in numbers.
Particularly lots of American Golfinches (Carduelis tristis)
 and House Finches  (Haemorhous mexicanus).
Happily it was cold enough that they really werent bothered that I was out on the deck  and they came in thick and fast.
And not forgetting the rather windswept looking Carolina Wren  (Thryothorus ludovicianus) much less secretive than the Old World Winter Wren (Troglodytes troglodytes).
