Posted on Apr 25, 2016

RTPI Affiliate Sean Graesser wanted to try something new with his Meet Your Neighbours bird photos, attempting to give them a little bit more of a John James Audubon feel with the modern twist of living birds and of course, photography. Here is a compilation of a few American Goldfinches (Spinus tristis) with their beautiful yellow plumage representing as the ever-present warm sign of spring. Photographed for the Meet Your Neighbours global biodiversity project in Connecticut while on assignment for The Roger Tory Peterson Institute of Natural History.
