Help me identify this bird

by Pamela Beale
(Innisfil, Ontario, Canada)


Found in Newmarket, Ontario.

This group of birds were bathing and I was able to get some shots from a distance.

Would love some input.

Thanks in advance,

Pamela

I'm not sure what they are, Pamela, but perhaps one of our readers will know

Definitely American Goldfinches in fall plumage.

I have these in my area and some of mine are Cedar Waxwings & the other one is the Bohemian Waxwing. I live in Vankleek Hill, Ontario.

Thanks, everyone!

Thanks everyone for your input. Much appreciated. I wasn't familiar with their winter plumage so a Finch was off my radar.

The name of that bird is Goldfinch. They look very chubby too :)
