American Goldfinch

1/500 | f/8 | ISO 640 | Fill Flash

I shall take a step back and give everyone a break from the Burrowing Owl images for now. Here is a shot taken on Wednesday of a American Goldfinch from my backyard. I have three goldfinch feeders in my yard to support the 30+ finches I have been seeing this winter and next to one of them I have been placing some perches for them to use. I still have not found a perch that I really like, but am still happy with this image anyway. The skies were overcast, which seems to be happening to me often these days! You can see in the image that the feathers on the finch are beginning to turn more yellow in preparation for their departure north.
