I have always loved Goldfinches. Tiny little flashes of gold traveling at high speeds. Then a number of years ago I heard the Ted Leo song, Golden Finch and found a new reason to love this little bird.
Last year I read the marvelous novel by Donna Tart and now every time I see a goldfinch I think of the book. This little guy was found at The National Aviary in Pittsburgh.
