Yellow Visitors

Share

Early one morning last week we had a couple of visitors.  Surprisingly Desi and Lucy didn't notice these two hanging out on the fence, and in the garden.  I think they were picking bugs out of the garden for breakfast.  I was able to snap a couple of pictures of the 2 American Goldfinch that hung around for a while.

From Wikipedia:

The American Goldfinch (Carduelis tristis), also known as the Eastern Goldfinch and Wild Canary, is a small North American bird in the finch family. It is migratory, ranging from mid-Alberta to North Carolina during the breeding season, and from just south of the Canadian border to Mexico during the winter.

The only finch in its subfamily which undergoes a complete molt, the American Goldfinch displays sexual dimorphism in its coloration; the male is a vibrant yellow in the summer and an olive color during the winter months, while the female is a dull yellow-brown shade which brightens only slightly during the summer. The male displays brightly colored plumage during the breeding season to attract a mate.
