American Goldfinch

Rondeau Provincial Park, Jan 21, 2021. Mid/late January and the water feature is still running. What snow we had has melted and I'm still riding my bike.

Not complaining but it unusual for this area of Canada in the winter.
Photo taken through the wonderful wildlife window.

Spinus tristis 
Paired-up goldfinches make virtually identical flight calls; goldfinches may be able to distinguish members of various pairs by these calls. The oldest known American Goldfinch was 10 years 9 months old when it was recaptured and rereleased during a banding operation in Maryland. source -
