American Goldfinch (male & female)

This picture was taken on 14 May 2006 in our back back yard. They are an extremely beautiful bird and their favourite food is thistle or Niger seed. They also eat seeds from last years weeds. They don't nest in the spring like most birds but instead nest in July or August and usually only have one clutch but will occassionally have a second.
