American Goldfinch Spinus tristis

Observer

March 26, 2015

Description

Interesting combination of American Goldfinches, some in winter plumage, one showing a few yellow patches on the back, and one near the lower right almost in full breeding plumage. There are also two PIne Siskins visible. American Goldfinch winters in Texas but they do not breed here, so the only time we get to enjoy the breeding plumaged birds is between late March and late April by which time they will be gone except for a few late stragglers.

Within the past week several male Black-chinned Hummingbirds have showed up at my feeder. Got a quick shot showing the purple band below the black throat to confirm the ID with a photo.

Description

Found two light morph Swainson's Hawks on a private ranch in Hays Co. These were the first of this species I have seen this year; they are just returning from their wintering grounds in South America. This species performs an incredible migration each year. Check out the map of the wintering range compared to the breeding range here:

ericisley and I saw probably hundreds today. They are very difficult to photograph at times because they are very sensitive to any movement or noise. Even the sound of the shutter seems to spook them. I will add more images in a while.
