Yesterday I saw an American Goldfinch in my neighborhood. I hadn’t thought that they lived here, but I guess they do. I’ve never seen one in my yard, but I do not think I have the kind of food they like. I’m pretty sure they like Nyjer Seed. They like to eat from a tube feeder, like chickadees. The male goldfinch is bright yellow with some black, & the female is sort of a yellowish, speckled brown. They live in nearly all of North America except some parts of Mexico & northern Canada.
