13th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
American Goldfinch fight

This is a photo of 2 American Goldfinches fighting over dried sunflower seeds in my garden in Montana. There were 10-15 Goldfinches in my garden this particular day. When there was one on a dried seed head; another one would want to be on that one too and that caused the fighting between them.
