American Goldfinch [Spinus tristis] ~ #54

After seeing the Rufous Hummingbirds we continued on the trail. I saw a flash of yellow up high and snapped a few pictures before it flew away. 71 more words



I think a better name would be Breathtakingly Yellow Finch. :D


Oooh, fancy!

I finally got a shepherd’s hook and a hanging feed tray for the studio side, set up by the lilac tree and the thicket. The goldfinches are loving it (of course, they love it much more if I’m not hanging out the window with my camera.) So far, the squirrels haven’t brought it down, but it’s early days yet.


Surprise Visitor!

This beautiful American Goldfinch was a surprise visitor to our backyard this afternoon. I was quite certain these birds had all left the area as I hadn’t seen one in at least three weeks. 212 more words
