Season of Transition  

American Goldfinch

American Goldfinch

American Goldfinches are half dressed for their weddings. The males' spring attire will be mostly gold, with a shining black cap. Quite different from the military olive-green we watched in winter.

Things changing

Now, one by one, the drab old feathers are pushed out of their shafts and replaced by the new. Season of transition.
