    I have seen a lot of pictures of your Goldfinches over the last year (not just on your blog) – and I have to say I’d like to see them for real. Also reminds me that I need to try to get some shots of the ones we have here (which were imported from England)

    Cheers and thanks for linking to WBW

    A fine capture of this beautiful bird. I like how he’s looking directly at the camera person.

  14. So sweet. Love these little birds.

  15. nigh on perfect portrait – the clarity and bokeh

  16. You caught the sweet nature that they have..I hosted a poor very windblown migrant today. It was eating rapidly and all puffed up..Must have been a nasty trip with all this wind and rain…Michelle

  17. I think this is a goldfinch with attitude. I think it’s scowling. 🙂

  18. Such a handsome guy! Margie

  20. Look like everyday is waiting for their return.

    Ditto on all of the above. What a beauty!

  22. Love the sun at his back…. so cute! The little goldfinches on my feeders are competing with some Evening Grosbeaks and House Finches, all considerably larger.
