Family of American Goldfinches

Female American Goldfinch, Spinus tristis, Pittsburgh, 2015

Seldom, or never, have I seen a family of goldfinches, but thanks to the dwarf sunflowers providing the seeds, they gathered together on one magical afternoon, became accustom to my presence, and feasted on the patio.

Fledgling, and future male given the beginnings of that signature black cap.
