Goldfinch

This was taken out at the strip pits today...I did not know that Queen Anne's Lace had anything for a goldfinch, but this one was on top of a dried flower eating the seed I suppose. He sure is a bright little fellow, but Roger seen him first and it took me forever to actually spot him.

A fine shot of this beauty! I keep some niger seed out in a feeder, but only get an occasional visitor and rarely see the bright yellow ones. Nice shot.

Great shot...I've never seen them on Queen Anne's Lace either. They seem to favor all the yellow daisy like flowers. They do seem to find seeds everywhere at this time of year that they like :-)

I forgot to comment on the link you sent me. Those roses look to be from the same plant! The color looks exactly the same. I enjoyed seeing your version with a view showing the whole plant. Thanks for sending the link.

That turned out well Rose!

Great photo, Rose. Goldfinches LOVE thistle---so he was probably in 7th heaven eating that seed.

Hope you all are having a wonderful day.
Hugs,
Betsy

Beautiful Goldfinch shot... especially with the Queen Annes Lace as its perch! We feed them via our feeder the Niger Seed and they love it...and we love seeing the bright yellow Goldfinch in their hurry to gobble it up! By the way Mickey has you on her blog..please take a look when you get a chance! Hope your Labor Day is one of rest and not labor!

Seems like he would turn himself around to get at it easier! Maybe he's just kissing the lady bugs that seem to be in there. :)
Lovely shot!

You got a wonderful picture of the goldfinch. I would say that you and Roger make a good team!

I didn't know that either. I thought goldfinches were all about thistles. I pass by a stand of thistles on my way into town, and always see a finch or two ro three... Neat shot!
