Backyard Birdfeeding - American Goldfinch



These small birds are one of my favorites that come to my feeders. They have such a brilliant yellow summer plumage that is amazing. A flock of them have just returned to my farm. I watched them for awhile, a pretty song, and now I know why some people call them "wild canary".  They eat thistle seed from a speciality feeder, and some black oil sunflower seeds.
