American Goldfinch
Carduelis Tristis

The Goldfinch is one of the acrobats of the bird world. They tend to like to hang upside down when feeding and they seem to prefer to cling to the side of the fence rather than sit on top of it.

The male is bright yellow with black wings and a small black cap. The femail is much duller in color. They tend to come in groups to the feeders, it is rare to see one goldfinch alone.

They are found all across North America from Southeran Canada to the Gulf Coast, They migrate south in the winter.
