Goldfinch in Winter

The Gold finch loses his beautiful summer feathers and gets a dull gray brown yellow coat of feathers for the winter. This allows him to blend into the leafless foliage of winter. A bright yellow bird would stand out like a male Cardinal. Even so, he still is quite a handsome bird. Here is my poetry in photos of the Goldfinch:
