At least that is what I think it is. If you know different, please let me know. I am pretty knew to this birding thing. This was taken right outside my living room, through the window. We have a bird feeder out there and I attached the branch you see to a sand to give the birds something nice to pitch on. I made sure to place the stand and branch such that there were no distracting background elements visible. Now I can shoot all winter long from the comfort of my living room!
It's really an American Goldfinch! Oh I do not know my birds but my friend Joleen does! Thank goodness she was there to help me get this right. I will try to do better in the future!
