Gold Finches in Sacramento

by Angie
(Fair Oaks, CA)

I live in Fair Oaks, CA (Sacramento area). Last year I had many Lesser Goldfinches and American Goldfinches at my yellow thistle sock by this time in October.


The new sock has been up almost two weeks and with the exception of one Lesser Goldfinch at my seed feeder along with the nuthatches and titmouses, not any finches in sight.

Are they late migrating this year? What is going on? I had dozens on the sock all last winter and had to repeatedly refill the sock.



Comment
Let's hope that they are just late migrating this year, as opposed to declining population numbers.
Please keep us posted.

I've had both kinds of finches at my feeder all year long. They have all but disappeared this week. Doves and sparrows are showing up in greater numbers now. South Sac. area.
