American Goldfinches breed in Pennsylvania before heading south for winter. American Goldfinches are popular birds with the males sporting bright yellow and black colouring in spring.
They can be found in weedy fields and overgrown areas foraging for sunflower, thistle, and aster plants. They are also common in suburbs, parks, and backyards. To attract more American Goldfinches to your backyard try planting thistles and milkweed. They will visit most bird feeders and prefer sunflower seed and nyjer seed.
