American Goldfinch

Spinus tristis


Small bird,dull brown with blackish wings with two pale wingbars, except during their mating season when males are bright yellow with black cap, black and white markings.


Woodland,trees,grasses and fences.


I enjoy seeing the color change in this small bird. The trees and fences are dotted in yellow. In the dull brown they have great camouflage and become less social.
