    Beautiful. Nature at it’s best. ❤️

  2. Color combinations don’t get more perfect than that. Great shot. 🙂

  3. Great capture, an attentive bird and fading flowers basking in the autumnal sunshine. ☀️

    We so rarely get to see one of these birds in their golden feathers. When they arrive here in the fall, they’ve turned or are turning ‘autumn drab.’ They certainly are beauties in those bright feathers.

    A seed feast! American Sunfinch might be another good name.

  6. Mine are going nuts on them and Catbirds going crazy with Poke Weed 🙂 Have a wonderful weekend.

  7. Lovely capture, Eliza… colour co ordinated too!

    So nice of him to color coordinate!

  13. Now that’s what I call a treat!

  14. Debbie says:

    Talk about being in the right place at the right time! And having a camera in hand, to boot — nicely done, Eliza!

  15. Super photo, Eliza. Goldfinches on golden sunflowers–what could be more summery?! 🌻

  16. Karen Lang says:

    So good 🌼🌻⭐️

  17. Like one of the flowers themselves. Lovely catch, Eliza!

  18. An avian flower—unique. Without you caption I almost could have missed the bird.

    Cute lil bugger

  20. jillslawit says:

    How lovely. Bit different to British goldfinches.

  21. This is delightful, Eliza.

  22. Maria says:

    The goldfinch is gorgeous! And all that yellow 🙂 So much happiness!

  23. Wonderful capture!🙂 I’m not sure why, but we’ve never had so many goldfinch visiting as this summer.

  24. Handsome fella! And a perfect combo in one shot! 💛🙌💛

    Beautiful, Eliza… we’ve had cold winds and rain the past week, so this glimpse of summer comes at a perfect time 🙂

  26. Brian Skeys says:

    Very different to our goldfinches, a very attractive bird.

  27. Brenda says:

    I adore goldfinches. Love their “potato chip, potato chip” chatter. For some reason, we have more chickadees than goldfinches on our sunflowers this year, though.

    • Eliza Waters says:

      I’ve never heard ‘potato chip’ referring to their call, but it suits. Our chickadees seem to be in decline. It may be due to the changes in forest composition around here. Plenty of blue jays, though.

  28. What a wonderful capture!

  29. naturebackin says:

    What a beautiful bird – and as others have said the yellow of the sunflowers complements the bird perfectly.

  30. Oh gosh … didn’t see it at first … blends right in! Great shot Eliza.

  31. Jane Lurie says:

    What’s not to love! Great capture, Eliza!💛💛

    Watching goldfinches bounce on flowers is so entertaining!
