Goldfinch's Nest, 3" (7.62 cm) wide by 2" (5.08 cm) tall.Known as the "wild canary," this small flocking bird enjoys eating thistle seed. The adult male Goldfinch is a bright yellow color in summer. The Goldfinch generally nests later in the summer than most native birds, and its nests are woven from plant fibers. It does not generally migrate in winter.

The American Goldfinch is a fairly delicate species compared with other wild songbird species admitted to us for rehabilitation.
