ABSTRACT
Goldfinch, a small songbird. The American goldfinch, about five inches (13 cm) long, is often called �wild canary� because of its color and song. The female is olive-yellow. The male is similarly colored in winter; in summer, it is yellow with black crown, wings, and tail. The birds travel in flocks, feeding chiefly on weed seeds. The goldfinch is the state bird of Iowa, New Jersey, and Washington.
