They were all very agitated and flying around like crazy. They were also calling out to each other. After watching for a while I realized that they were chasing and eating small flying insects that were almost invisible. Anyway, this is one of the birds that I couldn't identify. At first I thought it was a goldfinch in winter garb but it was larger than a finch and when I compared it to goldfinches that were also flying around the coloring was different. Any ideas? These photos were taken through my living room window so they aren't very sharp.
