Last week my husband had a doctors appointment and on the way back from it we stopped for a little walk at a little park in the middle of Richmond Hill, Ontario called the Mill Street Pond. As we were walking along the boardwalk along the edge of the pond I spotted this goldfinch pulling apart the thistle plants for the seeds. He did not seem to mind that I was sneaking up on him with a camera. Note that he still has his brilliant yellow feathers for a little longer. Later on he will take on the olive colour that is his winter colours.
Thanks to Isabelle LaFrance, ilafrancephoto.blogspot.com for this lovely little damask frame to show of the little bird.
