A selection of oppressed finches

Taken on 19 December during fairly active snowfall. Almost certainly all different individuals.

Definitely oppressed.

Despite what looks like immense feeder activity, I'm starting to wonder if it's more that I'm home to see it; the consumption rate is up some, but not all that much greater than it was in the temperate part of the fall. Having to shell the oil seeds may slow them down.
