One of the most adorable songbirds frequently seen at bird feeders is the American Goldfinch. During breeding season the male American Goldfinch is a vibrant bright yellow, he has a beautiful deep black forehead, rich black wings with white stripes and black and white tail feathers. The female American Goldfinch is also a pretty bird but not nearly as brightly colored as the males are. Females have much duller yellow bodies, they don’t have the jet black forehead and their wings and tail feathers are much dingier in color also.
American Goldfinches are little birds, they primarily eat a variety of different grass and flower seeds but also enjoy eating seeds from bird feeders. Male and female American Goldfinches are very lively vocal songbirds that are just as enjoyable to watch as they are to listen to.
