Male and female goldfinches are strikingly different during the breeding season when the males molt into bright yellow body feathers with black wings and a dark bill. However, they appear less colorful than their male counterparts in wintertime where they have dull yellow colorations on their bodies as well as white patches under their tail which helps distinguish them from other birds like Yellow Warblers or Wilson’s Warbler.

The species prefers open woodlands or farms that contain thistles for nesting sites and oak trees as food sources where they feed on seeds such as sunflower, American plum cedar nuts (seeds), goldenrod seed pods, ragweed pollen, etc., but also insects like beetles antlions spiders mayflies dragonfly larvae caterpillars crickets grasshoppers katydids flies termites bees wasps ichneumonid wasp winged ants – many different creatures!
