The Winter Goldfinches

The winter American Goldfinches have a lot less color than they do in the summer,
you probably all ready knew that!
I see them sporadically in the winter, but this week I have been seeing a lot.

The American Goldfinch is New Jersey's State Bird!

- talk about a lot of sticks, but he choose to sit in the middle and give me a clear view -

- here he was dining on berries -

That's all for today, I think perhaps I have been doing too much and my body is kicking back.
I may rest today or just spend time with my feathered friends!


  1. A lovely bird and a wonderful picture.
    Have a nice weekend, Debbie.

  2. Hi, little buddy!
    You can enjoy it with him, Debbie!
    Happy weekend!

  3. It's a little burst of yellow sunshine in the middle of winter. 😊

  4. Hello, cute captures of the Goldfinches. I have seen some male finches here that are starting to get their black heads. Have a great day and happy weekend!

  5. Such beautiful birds. Take care, Debbie.

  6. Beautiful pictures of these cute birds.

  7. That is a beautiful bird, love the colors! Not sure if we have them here, I will have to go look at my bird book! Hope you feel better by tomorrow my friend! Hugs

  8. Beautiful photos! You are fortunate to have these little ones as your state bird!

  9. A day spent with your feathered friends sounds like a most excellent plan, Debbie. Such a gorgeous bird!

  10. Fabulous photographs of this lovely bird.
    Take care Debbie … rest a while.
    My good wishes.

    All the best Jan

  11. I did not know that they get lighter in the winter, he sure looked happy.
    Hope your body has started to feel better, have to make sure you don't overdo it
