The American Goldfinch is also known as the "Wild Canary". The male of the species is bright yellow with a black cap and wings during breeding season.
This is another image from a couple of years ago. I think this is a female, but not being the avid bird guy like my friend Bill is.. I'm not 100% sure. I'm sure Bill will correct me if I'm wrong :) If it is male, the molting is obviously incomplete.
Please view on BLACK.
