    Colourful but stroppy! They are back on our feeders. Four seems to be a critical number. Two will co-exist, 3 will more or less take turns but with 4 it all kicks off.

    Don't you think it's seasonal.
    A parent and a brood and all is peaceful

    I regularly have four goldfinches at the feeders at any one time.They feed quite happily unless other birds are at the feeders first.
    You can see the frustration in their behaviour!!

    I should have said that we have a single niger seed feeder at which 2 goldfinches can perch. I've once seen a sparrow on it but generally the other birds go for the other feeders. The goldfinches don't usually go on the other feeders.
