Jan 4, 2013: Goldfinch

This male American Goldfinch adds a splash of color, even in its drab Winter plumage, to the bleakness of the Winter months.  Goldfinches are present year-round and is one of the later nesters (early July to late September).  The goldfinch is also the state bird of Iowa (although with its old name - Eastern Goldfinch). 1/4/13 (Wolf. Oesterreich)
