Goldfinch

A brightly coloured finch with a red face and yellow wing patch. Sociable, often breeding in colonies, they have a loverly liquid twittering song and call. Their long fine beaks allow them to extract otherwise inaccessible seeds from thistles and teasels. Increasingly they are visiting birdtables and feeders.

Latin Name
Carduelis carduelis
