20th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Willow Goldfinch of Washington State

I always enjoy the seasonal migrations of wildlife in the Pacific Northwest. The willow goldfinch is one of my favorites (its also the Washington State bird). I spend a considerable amount of time with the telephoto lens focused on wildlife. This image is one of the results.
