DID YOU KNOW: Breeding across much of southern Canada, the American Goldfinch is sometimes referred to as a wild canary but it is a member of the finch family—and only the male is decked out in those bright yellow-and-black feathers (the female is a more muted brown/olive colour). There are just three species of goldfinches worldwide, and only the American Goldfinch molts its body feathers twice a year.
