Here are a few European Goldfinches that have made their home in the Midwest.
Before you ask, here is a excellent article about the European Goldfinch in America:

Thank you Butterfly, not sure what where you're located but they are growing in huge numbers by the year. I heard reports that their are huge numbers of them now. I read they really love the Midwest weather. I hope you see some soon. Good luck! :)
