For a few days now some young goldfinches have been feeding at the ground table - I've never seen that before:-

This is a chick I had three years ago. Came for a few days then disappeared. Haven't had any since.

I agree you don't see Goldies ground feeding very often but when you're young the lure of an easy meal is too tempting to ignore. :)

Had six goldfinches on the hanging feeder a couple of days ago - looked like a family group :)

Have a pic of Goldfinch chick feeding on the grass but there was plenty food on the bird table. Post sometime it if I can find.

It is very noticeable that Goldfinch visits are increasing now. I think the natural larder must be exhausted. :)
