American Goldfinch

I have a bird-feeder outside my cabin in Blue Ridge, Georgia and normally I only see Tufted Titmouse (see below) and Carolina Chickadees. But the other day I noticed a flash of yellow fly-by the window and quickly looked outside to see an American Goldfinch sitting in a nearby tree. Unfortunately, it was a cloudy and windy day so the pictures are not the greatest due to higher grain but there is still enough detail to see it.
