American Goldfinch

Without any snow, stick season here in NH has curbed my desire to get out there and photograph landscapes. So, I’ve been concentrating on my bird photography.  There have been a lot of goldfinch around over the past few weeks. Here’s a photo of one from yesterday.

Now that spring is in full swing here in NH, we have been getting lots of the summer migrants show up. In addition to the migrating birds showing up we still have our year-round birds like the American Goldfinch. The Goldfinch have been going through their molt, and are changing from their drab winter colors to their more vibrant breeding plumage.
