A most exuberant bird

Out of all the birds that visit my feeders none exhibit the exuberance of the American Goldfinch.

Male American Goldfinch

These small, pretty birds amaze me with the joy they seem to display as they fly through the air, wings held close to their sides, undulating up and down, while they sing a cheerful song like little darts of pure happiness.

Female American Goldfinch

Everyday I walk out my door and hear and see these little golden darts, they make me smile and remind me there are others who enjoy life as I do.
