The Habits of the American Goldfinch in East Longmeadow
In East Longmeadow, spring brings the mating season of the American Goldfinch. The males with their brilliant bright yellow and black coloring are easy to spot. Bring them into your yard with a bag of Nyjer seed from The Bird Store and More. Nyjer seed or thistle seed is the little black seed that small birds find irresistible. Nyjer seed in your bird feeder will draw in the American Goldfinch to your yard. Once they come, you can enjoy all the wonderful habits of American Goldfinches.
Adult male Goldfinch in spring and early summer have bright yellow feathers, black foreheads, black wings with white markings, and white patches both above and beneath the tail. Adult female American Goldfinch has a softer faded yellow beneath, olive above. They both love to eat and hang out at Nyjer feeders which offer a tiny delicacy, smaller holes, and tiny perches. Perfect for the Finches but discouraging to larger birds.
