Photo Share: American Goldfinch feasting on flowers

Like most finches, the American Goldfinch is a vegetarian.

Even during the breeding season, when most birds switch their diet to more insects and other invertebrates to feed their rapidly growing young, goldfinches feast on flower seeds. 

If anyone would like to share a photograph of nature send it to bloubird@gmail.com and I'll put it on the Friday Photo posts.
