American Goldfinch

Guess who came to dinner! According to Birds of the Puget Sound Region, this is a male and female American Goldfinch. I haven’t seen these birds since we left California, so this is pretty exciting. I’ve also seen a hummingbird at the feeder, but I haven’t been fast enough to photograph it, let alone identify it, but I’m on the hunt.
