About the event

The American Goldfinch. Avian parenting is on the wane. There are, however, a few late nesters. The American Goldfinch doesn't start thinking about nesting until late June. This adaptation may be related to the availability of suitable nesting materials and seeds, primarily thistle, for feeding young.

The American Goldfinch male is a bright yellow bird with black wings and cap. The yellow of females and young is more muted. Goldfinches are energetic songsters throughout the summer. The “po-ta-to chip, po-ta-to chip” call is often heard, as birds fly overhead in an undulating flight path.

Listen to the Goldfinch sing!

Appropriate for birders of all skill levels, the walks run along forest, meadow and wetland trails around the main house and/or the dene.  Free. For more information, contact stephanie@hildene.org or call 802-367-7960.
