A Charm of Goldfinches

Until the other day, I had never seen more than just a pair of goldfinches at my feeder. Last week a flock of these lovely little birds came to visit. Facebook friends helped to identify them as non-breeding goldfinches. I’m not certain if they’re males or females, but aren’t they sweet?

    They love thisle seed but accept black oil sunflower as well. I have a four station tube feeder and often three of the perches will be taken up by goldfinches leaving one for everyone else. They like to crack the seed at the feeder instead of flying off like chickadees and others.
