Get To Know the Goldfinch

Goldfinches are colourful birds with a bright red face, and yellow, white, and black feathers on their body and wings. Goldfinches are sociable birds and can be found breeding in loose colonies. You may recognize their liquid twittering song and call from the bird table or feeder in your garden. Although many Goldfinches stay in the UK year-round, some can migrate south to Spain in the winter.


Key Facts

Scientific Name: Carduelis carduelis

Bird Family: Finches

Diet: Seeds and insects in summer

Population: Global population100 million/ UK breeding: 1.65 million pairs 

Measurements: Length: 12 cm/ Wingspan: 21-25.5 cm/ Weight: 14-19 g


Conservation Status and Threats

Goldfinches aren’t currently showing any signs of population decline and are on the Green list for UK conservation. However, Goldfinches are still susceptible to threats from disease and habitat destruction. 


Nesting and Breeding Habits

Goldfinches nest between April and August, often building their nests in scattered trees, shrubs, and hedges — just like the ones you may find in your garden.

Goldfinches usually try for two broods in a year. The female Goldfinch will sit on the eggs for about 12 days. Once hatched, the chicks will stay in the nest for about 18 days before forming a flock and begin searching for food.


When and Where to See Them 

You can find Goldfinches in your garden or in orchards, parks, or heathland across the UK year-round. While Goldfinches are found in Britain and Ireland all year, there may be fewer Goldfinches during the winter as some leave to winter in France, Spain, and Belgium.


How You Can Help

You can help the Goldfinch thrive by using recycling programs to decrease pollution and by supporting the RSPB here.
