Molting Gold

American Goldfinch: Kennebunk, Maine, USA — Following up on the post of a still very dull Goldfinch from a few days ago, here is a male going through the change to breeding plumage. It will be a month or more before we see males in full breeding. Last spring when I was in the blind every day I got to see the whole process. This one, however, appears to be on the fast track. 🙂 Sony Rx10iv at 600mm equivalent. Program mode with my custom birds and wildlife modifications. Processed in Polarr and Apple Photos.
