Featured Bird of the Month
May: American Goldfinch
A common sight in fields, meadows, and at feeders across the lower 48 continental U.S. states, the American Goldfinch is bird watcher’s delight. The males display bold lemon-yellow body plumage, accented by jet black, white highlighted wings and a jaunty forward tilted black cap, while females feature only slightly more subdued colors. These charming little birds are readily attracted to thistle and milkweed seed. In fact, if you’re really wanting early summertime color in your garden, plant milkweed to attract both American Goldfinches and Monarch Butterflies for an explosion of yellow and orange. And don’t worry about the goldfinches eating the Monarchs – the finches are strictly vegetarian and the Monarchs eating the milkweed make them unpalatably bitter to other birds that might be tempted to eat them.
