Pheathers – Color My World in Goldfinches

An American Goldfinch changes colors with the seasons. In autumn the male molts from summer’s gold to winter’s tan. In the spring, another change begins and the male goldfinch becomes bright yellow.

Today was the first day I noticed the goldfinches sporting their summer feathers. I had two pairs visiting my yard and photographed this sweet couple having a snack at my feeder. These beautiful birds are the perfect choice for today’s Color Your World – 120 Days of Crayola Challenge – Yellow.

  1. In North Carolina, we have a lot of finches that visit our feeders. We enjoy them and look forward to getting back up there. Rebekah has a a good variety of birds at her feeder here in Florida but I miss the finches.
