Juvenile American Goldfinch (Wild Canary) NEW
by: Anonymous

I believe you have a newly fledged Wild Canary. If you look on internet for images of the youngsters you will see. They don't nest until the end of July or early August since they depend on natural seeds (or bird feeders) which aren't plentiful until the end of summer so this is the plumage of the young (males) I believe. You will see them in a group with Red Finches and Siskins as well. Beautiful. Hey they love sunflower seed feeders, just saying.

Hi Steve,

I think it's a baby Goldfinch. I hope it's parents are still feeding it. It should be flying soon.
