American Goldfinch

Is it common behavior for American goldfinches to inhabit an area for one to two weeks and then suddenly disappear? The house finches seem to stay all winter and summer.

Birding Expert - George H. Harrison

American goldfinches will move around a region in winter a great deal. The goldfinches you see at the feeders in the morning are probably not the same birds you see at the same feeders in the afternoon. Sometimes they totally disappear for a couple of weeks.
