A magician finds a girl who is talented with a bow and can sense or see animals and such in different colors. She is always looking for a animal that is gold in color. She has magic and can shapeshift. I read it about 7 years ago at a library dow in Georgia. There is not a single book but a series.

Sounds like 'Wild Magic' by Tamora Pierce. The girl senses animals and monsters as different colours. Her name is Daine.There are 4 books in the series;
Wild Magic
The Emperor Mage
Realms Of The Gods.
They also tie-in with her Song Of The Lioness series, and the 'Trickster' duo.

Thank you. That was the series I was looking for.

The magician is *found* by the girl. Pony trainer hires Daine to move horses back to Tortall. On the way, they interrupt an attack of stormwings on a large black bird. After the attack, Daine *finds* the bird, Numair, hiding in a log in a swamp.

Daine sees the magic of magicians and magical creatures in different colors. And, at first, resents Numair's appellation of "magelet".

The dragon mother Daine heals, and the dragon baby she later adopts, has gold magic. Both change physical color with their moods.

Daine also makes several supporting appearances with her friend Kel, in the Protector of the Small series: First Test, Page, Squire, and Lady Knight.
