Spring 31: Goldfinch

7:50am-8:10am, Bussey Brook Meadow, Arnold Aroboretum, Jamaica Plain, MA
breezy, poofy overcast

A new song in the Bussey Brook soundscape: the Goldfinch sings!

This is the first American Goldfinch I've heard singing (as opposed to going, "Hu-uh?", as they have done all winter)

I'm feeling pretty confident about the identification since he was yellow-chested, and the sounds seem to match my bird book. But if someone out there knows better, please let me know!

Nice! Good to hear Red Winged Blackbird in the background. To me he always seems like he's saying "Burger Kiiiiiiing!"
