At the end of summer I put out some thistle bags along with suet feeders in hopes of attracting more birds to my backyard. I barely had them hung when the gold finches and pine siskins started showing up in groves. I now have three thistle bags and birds of all types are coming and enjoying a good meal. I was able to photograph this female goldfinch as she flew up in the cedar tree.
