he sure is pretty, and sings a good song, but who is he?
CLOSED: who is this masked man?
American Goldfinch... Aren't they beautiful right now? They're getting their color back. I counted 12 in my backyard yesterday at one time. Looked like a dozen lemons in my yard. Their song is so cute. And boy can they tear through a bag of finch seed! I think they remember dining on my coneflower last summer and are just waiting for it to boom again.

thanks, and yes beautifol isn't the word for it.he must be whats eating my thistle
yup, Jordan... they love the stuff. They're a welcome respite from the house finch that I've been flooded with. I'd much prefer the goldies. But I feed 'em all... even the female finches that aren't nearly as lovely.
