When I first saw this I thought it might be something else, but now just thinking Goldfinch. Taken today at Lansford Canal State Park in Catawba, SC

Not quite - it's a Prothonotary Warbler! Cool bird, congratulations.

Definitely not a goldfinch. I am thinking an oriole, possibly am Orchard Oriole female.

Strike that, I agree with Prothonotary Warbler. I see the white undertail coverts.

Lifelist: 240
Latest lifer: Wrentit

Sweet, just about 1000x better than a goldfinch (no offense goldfinch). Agree with Prothonotary Warbler.
