Goldfinch Looking Rough

It looks as if the above goldfinch might say in a Krusty the Clown sounding voice, "Ugh, I just had one helluva bender last weekend."

Fall molting is kicking in and our lovely golden yellow male goldfinches are losing their breeding plumage into their more camo friendly dull olive color.  At least we will see them all winter, they may not be yellow, but they will be here.
