American Goldfinch (Spinus tristis) by Scott Kruitbosch

Posted on Jan 25, 2014

I found this American Goldfinch sitting on our windows on the morning of January 23 at RTPI. It had just eaten sunflower seeds at our feeders for a bit and then chose to sit here in the sun against the building, all puffed up – the bird version of wearing extra layers. After a few minutes of warming up it flew off. There are plenty of extra fluffy birds on our property lately…
