Gold Finches Molting Season

GOLD FINCH TURNING BRIGHT YELLOW

The male goldfinches are in the process of molting into their brilliant spring outfits. New, colorful feathers push out the dull winter plumes. For the next few weeks we will be seeing goldfinches in various stages of molting and they will look a bit odd until the process is complete. Eventually they will be a beautiful bright yellow.
