Sparrows? taking shelter in the cedar trees

Diamond was transfixed on something out the window

As I approached I could see about 30+ (gold-finches) Thanks hazel in the cedar tress that are right outside my slider door.

This lil guy was sooo close & was staring at me right back lol

Even better than sparrows, DM--goldfinches! Yellowish-green, black wings and tail with white wing bars... They forage in flocks this time of year.
