Goldfinches

Spotted two goldfinches feeding on our peanut feeder one day, and the next day saw (same?) two much closer to house, where I've seen goldfinches in previous years; they seem to come to sample the dried seedheads of lemon balm.

I first saw this about 10 years ago and I've deliberately left the seedheads ever since - and the goldfinches keep coming back! Always happens around the first couple of weeks in December.
