Two Goldfinches

 Different day, different angle, different gender.

The male goldfinch is bright yellow in springtime. Aren't they pretty?

  1. Not only pretty, also very striking!

  2. They are lovely, Linda!
    Great pictures!

  3. You sure have a lot of different birds coming to your yard. I should probably feed the birds in the winter but we travel so much that I don't want the birds to rely on me for food.

  4. I love seeing the bright yellow of the males. Great photos!

  5. I have tried and tried to take photos of birds but not very successfully. So I can really appreciate these shots.

  6. Love these photo, they are so lovely!

  7. Lovely shots Linda:)Finches are pretty birds!
