Famished Gold Finch

From my seat in our family room I can see the Humming Bird feeder and the hanging tube with oiler seeds. We have a fine pair of hummers who come several times a day. The male really enjoys himself, drinking awhile, hovering in delight and drinking again.

Today I noticed that our flock of Gold Finch have been very hungry. I have counted at least three birds taking at least sixty seeds each! Other birds, such as Chickadees and House Finch take eight to twelve. Any insight?
