Steve’s Bird Of The Day #24.

He has a bit of snow on his beak from taking a drink of snow.

Hello again everyone! Well, today we have a very colorful bird, the “American Goldfinch”. This is a small bird the size of a chickadee and for us here in the north it is a summer visitor. This is the male in it’s summer plumage in the top photo, and it’s winter plumage in the bottom photo. Although it is normally a summer bird for us, last winter they were around in record numbers. Until last winter I had never seen one here in winter, so it was a special treat. There were over 100 that would come to my feeder at times, regularly there was around 50 of them. They have a nice cheerful song and usually come back here in May and leave in early fall heading south. They are easily attracted to feeders and love sunflower seeds and niger seeds. I hope you have a great day and God bless!

Steve and Muffin.
