- About Us
Another regular year-round resident that can appear in quite large flocks. When the males change from a dull green to their bright yellow breeding plumage, it is a sure sign of spring. They are chiefly attracted to Niger thistle seed in silo feeders, though will also take sunflowers from any kind of feeder. Like many smaller birds, Goldfinches nest in dense thickets, so it is good to keep some shrubby areas around your home, including red osier dogwood and willows, or dense coniferous trees.
The Confederation Forests will provide habitat for all species, making a place to live, learn, and enjoy for the islanders who are here now, and those still yet to come.
