The American Goldfinch

Day 194 / 365

Interesting Fact: They are one of the latest nesting birds, starting in late June or early July, when most other songbirds are finishing with breeding. Their late timing may be related to the availability of suitable nesting materials and seeds for feeding young. ( http://identify.whatbird.com/obj/91/overview/American_Goldfinch.aspx )



  1. Lol. I have a conflict going on in my head. Your photo of the divine bird just isn’t sitting well with the image of a stumpy little minion. I love your sense of humour.

  2. Ah, there he is–my state bird! Yet very seldom seen in New Jersey. I think that’s because the Sustainable Development-Smart Growth-Save the Planet crowd who runs my town has paved over almost every square inch of it.
