Saw one of those mixed in with the goldfinches last week.

I see you're fairly new so I hope you don't mind a little advice: the birds tails are clipped in these shots. That's fine if intentional but it's something to watch out for when shooting. If you set up a natural-looking perch near the feeder you can get better photos and avoid those shots where the feeder is blocking the sun. Now be careful, this hobby is addictive. Wouldn't want you to become afflicted with lens lust or any of the other ailments from which the rest of us suffer.

Those are nice and sharp. Just watch the tail clipping and I would also suggest setting up a perch near your feeder for a more natural setting.
