The female and young birds are duller and have brown tones on the back. The bill is thick and conical. The song contains wheezes and twitters, and the male has a "butterfly" display flight."(Wiki)

Hello Jose,
Outstanding image filled with exceptional detail and gorgeous colors. This bird reminds me of the Goldfinches we have here in Ohio. The colors are different, but the body shape and it's features are quite similar.
