American Gold Finch: Repost

American Gold Finch - I captured this from my driveway. He actually looked up at me when the camera went off. I've loved finches for a long time, but have only seen these beauties a few times close up and never had a camera on me! I'm so glad to have gotten this!

I see a lot of cardinals and used to see blue jays, but haven't seen a jay in a long time. That really stinks, because they are one of my favorite birds! We also see a lot of wrens, starlings and crows. Robins come from time to time, and we even get sea gulls in the super market parking lots in the summer! The gulls, I think drift in from Maryland on the wind.

Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania (near Harrisburg, on the opposite side of the Susquehanna River) I've read that the Gold Finches span a great distance across most of the U. S. They are so awesome!
