Winter is typically the hardest time on birds as certain food sources become scarce. Some species head south to escape the harsh weather and seek out a better supply of insect food. But a few species stick to an almost exclusively seed diet year-round, such as the finches. Chances are you have a few American goldfinches or house finches chowing down at your feeders this winter—perhaps even now, as you read this.

So, grab a nice warm cup of hot cocoa, kick back, and enjoy a little winter finch trivia.
