American Goldfinch

So this is from about 3 years ago. Taken out the front window about a week after we got home in April. I had some new feeders and they were very popular with your LBB's.
You can see the color change on a few of the little buggers backs. And some of the dark ones may be male but I can never tell at this time of the year.

So ask Brian what field marks he uses to tell winter plumage males from females. Maybe I just haven't been paying attention since they are always around.


Gotta go.

I'm thinking that they are immature goldfinches; the book I found bears that out.
