Goldfinch - Carduelis carduelis

Goldfinch  -   Carduelis carduelis
The Goldfinch is frequently seen in the countryside, feasting on flowers and grasses, but not often kept in aviaries though it is possible to get aviary bred birds. Canary breeders sometimes like to cross their birds with Goldfinches to produce 'mules'. Goldfinches are quite sociable, but better mixed with larger birds like Canaries or other British finches, rather than the smaller exotic finches.
