American Goldfinches, serious seed eaters, have been waiting all summer for flowers to develop seed heads from which they can feed. Gardens and weed patches are what they look for. Here, one bird is working a bergamot patch, the other dandilions. The birds are wonderful to see at feeders, better to see in a garden.
