King of All the Thistles

 
This is only a guess, but perhaps this is the lesser goldfinch Carduelis psaltria .

We were out trying to get some of the boys' energy out by walking to a local park. It was stifling hot, as most people in North America know, but the bugs and birds seemed happy enough. I think they like to laugh at the whole concept of sweating. Posted by Picasa

We have a ton of goldfinches when we keep the feeder filled. They are marvelous. I've not seen one with a black hood ever, but perhaps it's a different variety.

We just added a birdbath, so we'll see what that attracts.
