American Gold Finch of the Vermilon River. A Post to World Bird Wednesday.
Here's a few facts about these guys:
1) The male feeds the female while she warms the eggs.
2) She builds the nest, although he does help with the obtaining of material.
3) The birds moult in the spring and the male takes on his vivid look; in the fall they moult and he becomes similar in appearance to the female.
