Many people don't realize that the American Goldfinches are not bright yellow all year. In fact they are the only finch in North America to go through a complete molt two times a year.In the spring the male turns bright yellow with a black cap, wings, and tail, and white rump. The female keeps the duller brown color and lacks the black cap. The American Goldfinch’s legs, feet and bill also change from a dark grayish brown to a buffy yellow orange color.
