American Goldfinch

American Goldfinch


MORE 8 Jul 09
Hanging out on "Coneflower Hill."

UPDATE: 16 Jul 09

See also my field notes here.

UPDATE 25 Jul 09
I saw the goldfinch, raised my camera, looked in the optical viewfinder, focused, and, what do we have over to the left? A companion.

That's as good as it gets. She (I'm assuming that's a female) flew away. He stayed for a few more shots then flew away too.

"Goldfinches love the Echinacea seed crop and can clear out all the seed in a few days."

See blog post on Echinacea here.
