Episode 8: The Goldfinches of Summer
August 20, 2020

Overview:
There are three species of goldfinches across North America and they’re a joy to see when they visit your backyard. But some people consider goldfinches “finicky,” when in fact they are just very adaptable to their environment. In this podcast by Wild Birds Unlimited, hosts John Schaust and Brian Cunningham share tips for how to improve your chances of attracting goldfinches by offering their favorite foods and by creating a favorable habitat.
