This summer a family of American Goldfinches has made their home in the fir trees nearby. Many a day have been brightened by their singing and the flight call as they move from treetop to treetop. A few weeks back we watched this male Goldfinch searching the ends of the branches in a tree with abundant fresh growth.
The trees were teaming with small caterpillars and this guy looks to have found a nice meal that afternoon.
Meal devoured and a victory pose well struck.
Have a wonderful weekend.

Gorgeous photos of the birds, so different in looks to the European Goldfinch
Excellent photos of this gorgeous little bird, Mike and Christy.
Great images! Love the way the bird stands out from his surroundings.
