I just snapped a quick pic of this beauty. She was with a group of house finches. Before I could zoom in the camera, she was gone. A female goldfinch? Something else? Whatever he/she was, it was quick! It was either grab for the camera or the binoculars and I chose the camera. Glad I did!

Wings and Daydreams


10 minutes later...

She came back!

And brought a friend!

And even showed off for the camera!

Now that I've had a chance to look through my field guide, I've discovered this sunshiny bird is really a male goldfinch with winter plumage! Who knew they changed colors in winter? I certainly didn't.

This just goes to show you how amazing the bird world is. Every day I'm finding new surprises in my backyard and learning something new!
