Me too - a flock of Goldfinches in our exotic trees yesterday in Narrabundah, also about 50.  I’ve never seen more than 8 here before, and then only twice in 20 years.

That’s my impression also. I’ve seen them this week in Coombs and near Point Hut Crossing.

Am I right in thinking Goldfinches are becoming more common? I see them almost daily now. It is a bit of a worry. We tend to like them because they are pretty but do they compete with native finches?

Seen in a deciduous tree in Ellenbourough Street, North Lyneham, very close to Yowani golf course, last Friday 12/8 around 4 pm a charm of around 50 Goldfinches.  Nearby were 20 or so King Parrots on the golf course.
