52 Birds: Goldfinch

I feel like I've been missing out, having never explored this color palette before.  Expect to see more of it, because I love it, especially right now as I'm hankering for spring.  Seeing the tiny shoots of day lilies, tulips, and mallow begin to pop up around the flower beds has me all excited for warmer weather and an enormous vegetable garden.  

Until then, I'll focus on capturing a bit of birdy sweetness.  This week, it's the American goldfinch, which is quite noticeable at the moment because they are getting their pretty bright yellow feathers back, after a winter of the muddier yellow color.

As always, 52 Birds prints are in my Etsy shop, and throw pillows, etc can be found in my Society 6 shop.
