American Goldfinch

By taggart  
American Goldfinch
aka Wild Canary
Carduelis tristis. 5 inches. male---in winter plumage

Winter weather brings small flocks of the American Goldfinches to our feeders, feeding and conversing in their small twitters. They tend to forage where food is available in the neighborhood!

Good shot.
I looked it up... I think it's an immature male?

Our feeder has also had a lot of visitors - mostly various tits, with the odd robin and some sparrows. Nowhere near the rich variation of species as you!
