This is such a pretty bird. I just put out new seed in my feeder and the birds ate it all in one day. They are hungry.

Excellent shot.

A sweet goldfinch that reminds me of my pale mourning dove! Thanks Leedra!

Leedra said...

Ruth - Ours are very bright and dark in the summer, but pale in the winter.

Leedra,
Love your little Goldfinch. We are enjoying watching ours, too. there will be 25 to 30 out there at the same time! If they still come around like that when they are in full color, I may have a heart attack!

Tammie Lee said...

That sure is a sweet image!

Mary said...

This looks like that real pale one that I've got! I had never seen any this "white" before this winter. Do you have a lot that look like this? Most of mine are much darker in color.

Leedra said...

Mary - It is the winter color. It will turn bright yellow the closer it gets to mating season.
