He certainly was a bright yellow today dressed in his spring feathers .. The female goldfinch in contrast this time of the year is olive-green, but in the winter both sexes are yellowish brown. I went out to refill their seed dish after I shot this night I empty out the contents on the main feeder which the male goldfinch was picking through when he looked up.

Best View in Light Box! Thank you!!!
