May 13, 2015: Goldfinch

American Goldfinch. 5/13/15 (Wolf. Oesterreich)
While talking with Fritz and Susan Franzen by the savannah woods, Susan stated there was an American Goldfinch behind me.  I replied that she was right, because I could hear them singing.  She reiterated that it was right there, on the ground.  I turned around and spotted the male perched on a small branch, just inches off the ground.  The goldfinch allowed me to approach within a couple of feet.  The bird never flew off, quite content to stay on his perch.  Note the dirt on his bill.
