American Goldfinch On Cone Flower
I try to picture birds in their natural environment and doing things that we all see them do. Here a Goldfinch is feeding on coneflower seeds, something you and I have seen many birds do! After you have exhausted what there is in business, politics, conviviality, and so on and you have found that none of these finally satisfy, or permanently wear what remains? Nature remains. - Walt Whitman

This handsome little finch, the state bird of New Jersey, Iowa, and Washington, is welcome and common at feeders, where it takes primarily sunflower and nyjer. Goldfinches often flock with Pine Siskins and Common Redpolls. Spring males are brilliant yellow and shiny black with a bit of white. Females and all winter birds are more dull but identifiable by their conical bill; pointed, notched tail; wingbars; and lack of streaking. During molts they look bizarrely patchy.
