The goldfinch was on the danger list but the population has been growing in the UK and Ireland since 1985, partly due to new bird table seed mixes increasing winter survival rates. Some goldfinches like niger seeds and some like hearts of sunflower seeds. They will also eat seeds of teasels and thistles and are often seen on teasel and thistle heads in the wild. They can sometimes be seen in flocks of a dozen or more (a charm of goldfinches) and are recognisable by their high pitched chattering.
