|Attracting American Goldfinch
The easiest way to attract Goldfinch to your property is with thistle
seed. Thistle is a little more expensive than standard "wild bird food",
but goldfinch and other small song birds really love it. Thistle is usually
fed by a tube feeder or even less expensive a sock like in the photo above.
Another seed they seem to like is black oil sunflower seed. Our feeder
for "wild bird food" that contains black oil sunflower gets an occasional
goldfinch feeding at it, but our feeder with black oil sunflower seed gets
visited regularly by finch.
