The goldfinch is a gregarious bird, gathering in small flocks and competing aggressively at bird feeders. Their favorite food is thistle seed although they will eat other small seeds or nuts.
More pictures of this brightly colored bird can be seen in my American Goldfinch Gallery at Istockphoto.com. Other bird species can be seen in my Joy of Birds Gallery. A limited selection of my bird pictures are available as prints in my Birds Gallery on Fine Art America. For special offers and to follow my photographic journey please Join My Email List.
