American Goldfinch

Spinus tristis - Common in flocks in weedy fields, and roadsides and in seed-bearing trees. Fond of thistles, sunflowers, and dandelions. Well, we have lots of weeds, dandelions, thistles and seed-bearing trees on our 11 acres. They must feel right a home. We are happy to share our weeds, thistles, and dandelions with these colorful friends. Song is long, high, and sweet. Call, per-chik-o-ree, is diagnostic of this species. Both are given in flight.
