American Goldfinch

goldfinch-001


This little fella flocked with House Finches and visited our backyard in the afternoon.


Male Goldfinches differ strikingly in winter and in spring. Non-breeding adult goldfinches are rather subtle and dull in their color in winter.


This little fella wasn’t as colorful as in spring, nut still very joyful and hungry :-)
