Movie Monday: Goldfinch on Sunflower

I’ve been getting a few American Goldfinches coming through the yard in the last few weeks, and although they will feed on niger seed in the tube feeder, they really seem to like eating sunflower seeds right off the plant.  Here are a couple of pictures, plus a video that shows one ripping the outer leaves off the sunflower to better get at the seeds.  They really have to work to get a meal!
