I'm turning into quite the amateur ornithologist

We get quite a nice variety of birds to our feeder, and I really enjoy sitting here with my laptop and glancing out our picture window. If I do say so myself, I'm getting to a be a pretty good bird watcher. I'm a little stumped on this species however. They're gold, and they appear to be some type of finch. Hmmm, it may take me a while to identify this exotic bird.

those are called American Goldfinches.

Thanks Gino; I pray to God that everyone realizes I was just trying to be witty here. I do know what a goldfinch is.

I didn't know. But I'm not very smart.

All I can tell is that there are three males and one female. About the only bird I can recognize is chicken.
