Is this a male winter American Goldfinch?

Recommended Posts

Welcome!

It's an American Goldfinch, but it's tough to tell the sex when they're in winter plumage.  Notice the strongly contrasting black wings with white wingbars, matching tail, and overall buff color with hints of yellow.

Please remember to include the date and location next time.  Thanks!
