Only a Family Group? Let's Hope!

To revisit a storyline a little earlier in 2011, it continues to look like my American Goldfinch invasion is in the past. We were horribly overrun by these "Gluttonbirds" from January through early May, but they've been off, and only a few individuals visit, and irregularly at that. I suspect that's one family group, and as evidence I have this photo of what appears to be a nonbreeding male, possibly a juvenile. As with all of the finches, especially, too much is a bad thing. Happily, we have a sustainable crowd of them at the present. Will the mob return? We certainly can't rule that out, can we? But let's not think about it.
