My Goldfinches disappear every winter. I think it's because my thistle 
feeder loses it's cover when the leaves come off the trees making them feel 
too exposed to come to it.

    Long time passing...
    But seriously, we seem to have very few around the feeders this winter. 
We've got large raucous mobs of redpolls at the niger seed feeder, but no 
goldfinches.  How were goldfinch numbers doing in this year's Christmas 
counts?
