I believe this little guy was getting ready to fly off, but he looks like he's posing to me.

Hi Woody, pretty looking bird and I really like the position you caught it in.

PS - for some reason this doesn't look like a finch in this picture but you've been around enough finches to know what it is. The beak just looks too darned sharp. My amateur position in bird identification shows through here.

Thanks for the comments Normcar. It is a Gold Finch. The bill does look sharp, but if you'll notice the light colored speck just above the bill, the top of the bill is lost in the dark background. Good eye and good question. You keep me on my toes. Woody
