American Goldfinches

American Goldfinch

Every year is different at my bird feeders. I’ve usually had a few American Goldfinches around the feeder although one year I didn’t have any. I thought my feed was bad so I gave some of it away. I’m still using the same feed but this year I’m overrun with Goldfinches. I’ve counted as many as 50 at the feeder at any one time. One reason might be that we have had quite a bit of snow this winter including an early storm that dumped over a foot of snow on the area.

They are definitely fun to watch. They usually show up at the feeder in waves. A few will come in to check things out and then a wave of 10 plus birds will come in usually followed by several more waves. Then all of a sudden they will all takeoff only to start returning again in a few minutes.
