I had an interesting bit of behavior in American Goldfinch on June 26 at
GWCNM.  Four of them were feeding on webworms in a cherry tree.
I have not observed this activity in goldfinch before and have not read
it in the literature either that I recall.  The activity attracted an 
American
Robin, two Northern Cardinal and a pair of Baltimore Orioles.  Fun !
