There’s something always cheerful about a goldfinch. Seeing one makes my heart soar. This one at Tucson’s Sweetwater Wetlands was enjoying a dip in the water. This sort of gold is beyond price, a small piece of sunshine to brighten the day.

Breaking news!! I’ve just been informed that this is a male yellow warbler, not a goldfinch. Sigh. Sorry about that. 😬 But he’s still a bright, beautiful gold! Thanks, Deborah, my birding friend and expert.

    A beautiful little bird……so golden 🙂

  4. Wow … much brighter than the goldfinches in my area.

  5. It’s lovely and how delightful that you sighted it while taking a bath.
    I don’t believe it’s a Goldfinch though. I think you have yourself a Yellow Warbler-Male there. 😀

  6. Great shot, Janet! What a bright little chap he is.

    Ally Bean sent me! I’m glad she did! What a beautiful warm gold of the bird which is not a goldfinch. Brightens my heart it does.

    Warbler or finch, it’s as gold (and beautiful) as they come!
