Seven American Goldfinch
If you love an image (whether it's yours or someone else's) and want to make sure others get a chance to see it, you can “feature” it by choosing the “Spotlight” button.
When an image is Spotlighted, it receives enhanced visibility in premium spots throughout the site. Spotlighted images are rotated through these higher-visibility positions to ensure the best opportunity for the images to be seen by JPG users.
If you see a great photo that would make a perfect entry for one of our Shoot Out photo contests but it was uploaded by another user, now you can enter that photo in the contest and, if it wins, you get to share in the contest winnings.
Like a photo editor, if you've got an eye for great work, find it and submit it to a contest. If it wins, since you staked the entry fee, you'll take home part of the prize (the rest, of course, goes to the member who shot the image).

When he sowed, some seeds fell by the way side, and the birds came and devoured them up...
St. Matthew 13: 4
Seven goldfinch, of the same feather
Came on the feeder to eat together.
The food they most like to devour
Are seeds from the sunflower..
Poetry by me, AJP
I replaced my previous entry for this one...I was lucky to capture seven American Goldfinch on the feeder at one time as that doesn't always happen to come out to that number and retrieved this picture from my archives.
This probably is the first time that I have used sepia for a bird picture but there happened to be some reflective distractions from the window glass that caused splotches of red to appear
on the colored version and figured it would be less distracting to convert it into this tone instead...The male goldfinch that time of the year when I shot this picture in November lose their bright golden color and turn olive...the male and female consequently look similar when this occurs.
