Goldfinch, Forest Park, 160711

Early in the morning, I went off for my usual walk to Forest Park, and the weather was kind enough to allow me to wander around for two and a half hours! And one of the last things that delighted me was the sight of a beautiful litle

American Goldfinch :

This looks like a female:

She was flying between the Coneflowers and the Chicory weeds:

She made a delightful picture, though catching her was a tough job as she flitted about:

But I enjoyed the sight of her...I waited about for the male, but had no luck...and walked home finally, satisifed with just my sight of "Thangam Mami"!
