American Goldfinch

Date of our first picture:  May, 2011

Location of our first photograph:  Platte City, MO

Also known as:  Eastern Goldfinch, Wild Canary, (Carduelis tristis)

Interesting fact(s):  American goldfinches are one of the latest nesting birds, starting in late June or early July, when most other songbirds are finishing with breeding. Their late timing may be related to the availability of suitable nesting materials and seeds for feeding young.
