The Gold of Spring


During Spring the American Goldfinch (Spinus tristis) turns into a beautiful yellow colour. This bird hints at his new colours to come.

    This is a great picture, showing the color change. They do look rather dirty at this time of year, but we know, brighter colors are coming.

    • Ruth, thank you! They are certainly one of my favourites, even in winter colours!

  3. One of few birds with such a drastic colour shift… And always at the feeders… Such fun to watch.
