Birds - American Goldfinch
Class:Aves Order:Passeriformes Family:Fringillidae


American Goldfinch, Carduelis tristis, a migratory bird from the finch family that fully molts, with the male changing from his winter olive hue to a summer vibrant yellow. Females don't change so drastically, going from a brownish winter yellow to a slightly brighter yellow in the summer. A patch of Echinacea (also known as Coneflower) will attract these beauties to your garden. You can tell when they've been around because there will be shards on the leaves where the birds have dug for seeds.

All species pages are currently being updated with more useful descriptions and information.
