American Goldfinch

24 x 36"

This painting of the American Goldfinch's Song was done with airbrushed acrylic on canvas.  The song of the Goldfinch can be termed noisy with their apparently random order of discreet notes and phrases.  They sing for a fairly long period of time and the song is heard throughout late spring and in their breeding season.  It will twitter during flight and is often called the Wild Canary.  It has a black patch on its forehead and wings with white on its wing bars and rump along with the perky yellow on the chest.
