A ShutterBug Explores ~ Saturday Critters

'Laughter is the sun that drives winter from the human face.'

~ Victor Hugo


A bird I don't recognize on my feeder on Cape Ann MA.

(I am a new backyard birder ~ can anyone tell me what this sweet bird is?) A finch???

We are sharing with: Eileen's Saturday Critters.

 I love your comments. Thank You.



Angel ~ my recent rescue ~ love her ~ Xox

'Zoe' in memoriam ~ Xox~ love her still.


  1. Hello,

    Love the laughter quote! Cute Goldfinch, one of my favorite yard birds. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post! Take care,enjoy your day! Have a happy weekend!

  2. An American Goldfinch, I believe, Carol. Their color fades in the Winter months which a lot of people don't realize....:)jp

  3. A lovely goldfinch in winter colours!

  4. What a sweet little bird, I'll go along with the crowd and say Goldfinch.

  5. Looks like finch but I’m really bad at identifying birds. He/she is very cute, though!

  6. Yes, Definitely an American Goldfinch. Watching them change into their summer plumage is one of my favorite things to do in early spring. The bright yellow is always a welcome sight telling me that summer is on its way.

  7. Yes, that's a goldfinch and I have seen it many in Eileen's blog. Lovely capture 🌝

  8. Oh, such a beautiful quote. Awesome nature too! Hope you are having a wonderful weekend!

  9. It's pretty, and i don't know how to recognize many birds, either. It's okay, we all have to start somewhere.

  10. Bird watching also seems to be the sun that drives winter away from a human face. Lovely photo.

  11. Love the quote about laughter - ... and the bird of course.

  12. It's a lovely looking bird and I'm so pleased that others have identified the bird :)

    All the best Jan
