there's gold in that there tree

A flash of gold outside the window caught my eye as I came into our bedroom around noon today.

Closer investigation revealed a little bit of magic in the birch tree next to the house. It was loaded with goldfinches busily eating the seed pods.

Secondo tried to capture how many were hopping around up there, but it was almost impossible through the window—and you couldn't see them from the ground.

How many can you find? I can pick out seven in this shot...
