This morning there were roughly a dozen American Goldfinches eating the last of the sunflower chips in two of the feeders.   A couple of the males are brilliantly yellow.

American Goldfinches Finishing up Sunflower Chips at Season’s End

The Gray Catbird showed up for a drink from the bubbler.  The Ruby-crowned Kinglet ate mixed nuts from the cylinder feeder.  For the first time this season, I saw a pair of Northern Parula in the oleander next to the bubbler.  I still hear a Pileated Woodpecker in the woods behind the house, but haven’t caught a glimpse recently.

And this Black-and-white Warbler showed up for a prolonged bath:
