Default American Goldfinch ( I Think? )

I think this is an American Goldfinch, as it comes with a group that are more easily recognizable. Maybe just a variation in the color pattern?
Looking for confirmation if anyone is more positive about it!
Have seen many of these, but never one in this particular coloring!

What a fine shot mr. Ledford(!). Great colors and fine sharpness. It's a really beautyful shot. But sorry - dont know the birds name...

Greetings - I'm new here but sure do like the looks of this forum! Great topics and great people!

My compliments on the photo. I may be mistaken but I believe that little fellow is a Pine Warbler. The American Goldfinch has a shorter, thicker beak and slightly different coloration. Those 'little yellow birds' can get pretty confusing!

Enjoy!!

Thanks Jon,
I'll check my book again for this one, this is my first time seeing
this particular bird!
I'm going to post another pic of a real American Goldfinch!

Thanks for the reply!

Greg
