American goldfinch

Spinus tristis

Description:

It has been quite hot and humid in the area where I live (a heat index of up to 105F/41C and it looked as if this bird was using a zinnia in my garden as a parasol! They are enjoying the seeds of my zinnias and salvias.

Habitat:

My semi-urban yard
