We get tons of House finches at our feeders but the goldfinches only show up on occasion. I am kind of a novice at bird identification so I was pretty sure this is a female goldfinch but, it is actually a male Pine Warbler. It seems that there are a few different finches and warblers that are close to the same size and have the yellow color as well as the black wings with white stripes.
I’m hoping that we see some male goldfinches soon since the color is brighter and it’s pretty easy to pick them out. They really add some great color to contrast with the other birds we see often. Lately, it’s been woodpeckers, cardinals, blue jays, house finches, chickadees, wrens, titmouse and nuthatches at the feeders most often. We see morning doves, towhees, and brown thrashers on the ground and hummingbirds at the flowers and feeders.
