Small yellow bird, looks like American Goldfinch but with out the black part on the head and its wings are more tan. It had an orange beak with a black smudge, and it has orange legs. I've seen it a lot this is the first time I've seen it and I had my camera on me.

Hello to you and Happy Easter,

Your little bird is a female American Goldfinch. The females do not have the black hood and are more of an olive color. It is nearing breeding season so watch for her brilliant yellow mate.
