September 26th, 2014 – Avian Friday: American Goldfinch

This weeks bird is one that I always seem to have difficulty capturing. I never seem to be able to sneak up on the Goldfinch, at least to within a close enough distance to make a very good image. They don’t seem to sit still more than a fewer seconds when I am able to get In range. I manged to get a couple looks at this little fella before he figured out I was in the vicinity.
