Finches in the foggy morning

Common redpoll, distinguished by streaked flanks, small size and stubby yellow bill.

Updated with a new January, but this time a snow day and finches a little argumentative.

Often if seeds get covered with very much snow, they can't seem to find them.

Finches came to the feeder in a large flock on this foggy, gray January thaw day.

They stayed for maybe five minutes eating black sunflower seeds.

There were some goldfinches and some purple finches, but they were being  less photogenic.

The flock left in a burst of wings. I wonder how they all decide to do that?
