Bird House Signs with Goldfinches
Back to Birds
Goldfinches are beautifully bright-coloured birds that feature a bright red face and a yellow patch on their wings. It's not just their looks that make them easily recognisable. It's also their song which is a musical twittering of multiple notes that stand out from the rest of the bird species.
These birds are anywhere in the UK that there are scattered bushes and trees. These places include orchards, parks, gardens and heathland. However, they are much less common in Scotland. The birds can be spotted all year round; however, some flocks may migrate south during the colder winter months.
Their nest is neat and well-constructed and usually located up high. The male brings all of the materials for this, while the female builds the nest itself. This process usually takes the birds about a week to complete.
Their long and fine beak allows them to feed on commonly inaccessible seeds from flowers such as thistles. It's due to the thistle eating that this bird was associated with Christ's crown of thorns and was referred to as a "saviour" bird. They are also increasingly visiting bird tables and feeders in our gardens. As goldfinches eat mainly seeds, they need to drink more water than other species of wild birds. You can, therefore, always provide them with a fresh water source in your garden for them to use and enjoy!Here at Village Green Signs, we have a couple of hand-painted goldfinch house sign designs to choose from and display on your home!
From start to finish, your sign will be in skilled hands.
We pride ourselves on the care and commitment taken for every sign we produce. Attention to detail is paid during each stage of the process; from laying out the sign details to hand-painting the design, right through to shipping. Our goal is to produce a beautiful sign that we can all be proud of.
