Bird Nerd: Gold Finch

Photo Credit :

You may not know that I am a total bird nerd. We have some pretty amazing birds in our back yard.

We found Gold Finch back on the feeder this week. It took us a few years to attract these little friends. They like to eat thistle. We buy ours at the grocery store or pet store. Here are Gold Finches in our yard:

They are fast little fliers and scare much easier than the house finch. You have to train your eye to watch for them.
