I was given a Nyjer seed feeder for Christmas, and am hoping to attract Goldfinches into my garden. This is a super photo.

I like your shot a lot. It may seem simple but taking a balanced photo with such symmetry of birds in the wild is not easy. Great job

It does look like a nice family dinner. As I've seen throughout this challenge, the background bokeh is very complimentary and sets these guys off nicely.

The image really made me look at it more and more. Looking at the birds to image seems balance but it looks like the feeder is off center. Nice depth of field.
