Nice one!  Sure different than our goldfinch!

Yesterday, in passing my observatory I noticed a dark robin looking bird on the feed tray in front of the one way mirror so I slipped in quietly and went up the stairs and stood a few inches behind the mirror.  Turned out it was a Brown-headed cowbird and he was romantically eying the prospective mate.  Fanned his tail, ruffled up and gave a kiss while singing the sweetest little song not unlike the Red-winged blackbird.  Made my day.

Cool... sometimes it the smallest instances that have the biggest impact..!

Just checked out American Goldfinch on Google (assuming you're from the states) nice bright... very different from European species.

FWIW - western Canada, but it's the same bird.  Both are striking but yous has the edge. ;)

I'm back from a trip to Belgium, France and Germany. Here some of my shots at a lake/nature reserve in France - a night heron in flight. I have never seen one of them before.
