the American Goldfinch looks like our Chaffinch. It is special.
Amazing that some of them are so alike, isn't it Bob?
American goldfinch looks like Japanese one! It looks so familiar to me but I haven't photographed them yet because they are not still...
Lovely looking bird Gary.Agree with Bob, it looks very much like our Chaffinch. I love that first shot.
ah, these are great, especially like that first one. Good stuff!
I reckon we are going to need Latin names, because goldfinches look very different to me.
Sweet G-finches, Gary. Did Boom take the shots?
Nice series, Gary. We are a bit ahead of you in terms of molting into spring plumage, but I like the subtle muted colors of their winter plumage.
Nice set of images Gary.
Great photos and beautiful little birds. I like the beautiful blue sky behind the birds.
Chaffinch for me in the UK to Gary. Your Goldfinch is a lovely little bird and captured so well.
So THAT's where they all are! My housemate reports there have been no goldfinches at my feeder in Cape Breton this year. ~karen
And soon they will be brilliantly yellow and light up our north woods. At least the males will. That is one of the best sign of the coming spring! Great photos Gary!
The simple birds often give the most pleasure. I get Goldfinches in the garden and they are great fun to watch with the other finch species. Agree with others that the US goldies have a look of a slimmer female ChaffinchNice series of images as always Gary
Great photos of the Goldfinches. They are sweet looking birds.
One can never have too many Goldfinch pictures. Mine all left this winter, and I look forward to their return. B.
Hi - the only gold-finches we have down here have been released and gone wild - although it's still nice to see them.By the way: How much does Boomer eat every day!!Cheers: Stewart M Australia
That is a very nice problem to have! I enjoy watching these beautiful little birds all year long. Lovely shots here!
I love their sweet tweets and wavy flight patterns. Yes...one cannot have to many photos.:)
Bring on those pictures of goldfinches. They are one of my favorite birds and I watch anxiously for the males to start turning bright yellow again. I have a feeder a safe distance (for their little minds) from my back door and I love when I go out and hear them chittering and chattering away.
Can Never get too many Goldfinch fotos--These are Wonderful!!!
Very informative pictures, front back and sides of this pretty little bird.
it is good to have photos from all angles. At least when you don´t know them att that well.
Hi Yoshi. In the winter they tend to appear in waves.
Hi Keith. They are beauties!! Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.
Thanks Johnny. They're relly great little guys and gals.
Hi DorG. A goldfinch is a goldfinch is a goldfinch....
Hi Robin. Boom points them out and gets them lined up. He's still having trouble holding the camera.
Yes right, that is a problem I wouldn't mind having at all. We used to have these birds in our Oregon yard (pre-digital, so sadly no problem of having too many -- or any -- shots). I love the little guys. Very nice pix
Hi Hilke. Nice to hear they're changing there, next you'll have Robins.
Hi Mick. I think that's my allotment of blue sky for this week!!
Hi Andrew and they're all over the place this year.
Hi Karen. It's because of the benefit package here, and we're not giving them back.
Hi Springman and welcome back. Hilke has said they're changing in Vermont, so yours should change soon.
I think these might be females Dave, but the male looks the same in his winter coat. The change is what we're waiting for.
Thanks eileeninmd. I never get tired of them.
Hi B&G. That's too bad because they brighten up winter!!
Hi Stewart. Boom eats about 16kg of soft food per month interspersed with meat treats. I cut him back in the summer because he is less active.
They are a great visitor pattyler1.
Boom and I enjoy them also Jean!!
They are fun Louise.
Hi Sondra and I agree there are never enough!!
Sort of mug shots, Arija.
Glad you enjoyed them NatureFootstep.
Hi Sallie, they are great visitors.
Yeah, I don't think it's ever a problem to have too many shots of these lovely birds -- great post!
Yup they're beauties,Pat.
Great shots of the American Goldfinch Gary. I have only had a few visit this winter and they haven't been around lately.
They've all moved here Larry and are now known as Vermilon River Goldfinch.
