European Goldfinch

European Goldfinch - Carduelis carduelis


Western Treatment Plant, Werribee: 2014:  January.
 Templestowe:  2017:  January.


An introduced species which doesn't seem to cause many problems.  They have a pretty song and are usually in groups.  Young birds lack the head markings.

Yellow windows in their wings make flight identification easy among our small birds.
