American Goldfinch in my backyard here in Arkansas

The American Goldfinch is another frequent visitor to my backyard here in Arkansas.

Human activity has generally benefited the American Goldfinch. It is often found in residential areas, attracted to bird feeders which increase its survival rate in these areas. Deforestation also creates open meadow areas which are its preferred habitat.

    Wonderful series Steve, I agree with Maria Rosa on #3, also love the pensive look on the face of #2. Your photography is so great, I only wish I had 1/10 your talent (and good equipment), but am so happy I am a follower of yours, I can enjoy wildlife thru your eyes.
    Way to go!!!

    Lovely little girl – some of the male goldfinches at my feeders are starting to brighten up already. Seems we might have an early spring afterall. Gold finches are among my favourite birds year round – like golden pennies, they flit around and call to one another when they fly from tree to tree…

    These are great shots Steve – really special close-ups… your photography keeps getting better and better… there aren’t too many in your class.
