Goldfinch (Conwy, North Wales) by Cj Roberts on Flickr.
A Goldfinch in the Conwy Valley (Latin name Carduelis carduelis) and of the family (Fringillidae). A highly coloured finch with a bright red face and yellow wing patch. Sociable, often breeding in loose colonies, they have a delightful liquid twittering song and call. Their long fine beaks allow them to extract otherwise inaccessible seeds from thistles and teasels. Increasingly they are visiting birdtables and feeders. In winter many UK goldfinches migrate as far south as Spain.See them Anywhere there are scattered bushes and trees, rough ground with thistles and other seeding plants. Likes orchards, parks, gardens, heathland and commons. Less common in upland areas and most numerous in southern England. · #goldfinch #gold #finch #finches #bird #bright #colourful #parrot #like #red #yellow #black #small #passerine #tree #branch #nature #wldlife #conwy #conway #north #wales #gogledd #cymru #uk #100+commentgroup #myposts #wildlife #wild #wilderness
