Gold (well, yellow) in week 22.

A male American Goldfinch poses in front of a complimentary background.

Is it just me but wouldn’t Yellow Finch be a more accurate common English name? A bit like Purple Finch would be more accurately called a Raspberry Red Finch.

Taken during week 22 of my 52 week photo project. The bird is in shade with sunlit Cedar trees as a background.
