It is always a delight to see a new bird at the bird feeder. I have mostly sparrows year round so it was a treat to see this brightl canary yellow colored bird which is called American Goldfinch. The yellow and black color is specific to the breeding males.
Goldfinches are commonly found in weedy fields , open flood plains, backyards and parks. They feast almost entirely on seeds from certain trees, sunflowers and grasses. They are known to be somewhat acrobatic, balancing on the seed heads of plants as they feast on the seeds.
Have you seen anything new in nature recently?
