Named after the splash of gold wing feathers rather than the bright red square face, the Goldfinch (European Goldfinch) enjoys seeds from thistles and teasels.
They enjoy sunflower hearts as well as nyger seeds
Some are resident all year round and some migrate south in winter
Breeding plumage includes an all white beak rather than the black-tipped beak of the non-breeding wardrobe
Most small birds leave when the Woodpecker comes to eat, but the Goldfinches stay put -- until he speaks to them.
