American Goldfinch All Fluffed Up by 


I love it when birds fluff themselves up and look like little powder puffs! I seldom see the American goldfinches doing that so it was a treat to see this one ruffling its feathers on this sunny day in January that had a hint of spring in the air. Guess it was feeling fresh and frisky after the cold spell we just came out of. Here in Louisiana we enjoy the goldfinch’s presence only during the winter months. Its plumage is rather dull in comparison with its summer coat so when the bright yellow feathers start to appear, we know it’s time to say good-bye. They’ll be leaving us shortly thereafter.

    Yes I love the little puff balls too, Bonnie! Good timing with this capture.
    I think those two tiny twigs actually draw us into the picture too.
