moulting goldfinches

The goldfinches have really started coming into the spring plumage over the last 2 weeks.
This one still has a fair amount of winter coloring to it.

Most of mine look more like this bird, mostly yellow but still with a fair amount of patchy gray. The forehead is the last part of the black cap to come in.

This one is pretty close to full breeding plumage, most of mine aren't quite this far along.
