A male and female Goldfinch dine on their favorite food - Nyjer thistle seed.

Proof that spring is just around the corner, both birds are molting into their Spring colors.

The male is getting his vibrant yellow feathers and the black band is beginning to appear on his head.

The female is slowing turning an olive color.

Soon nest building will begin!
