Goldfinches love Nyger (thistle seed) and black-oiled sunflower seed. They also like purple coneflower and black-eyed susan seed heads left standing in the winter months. Shown above, Goldfinch on Zinnias for the seeds.
The Mourning Dove (Zenaida macroura) is a member of the dove family (Columbidae). The bird is also called the Turtle Dove or the American Mourning Dove or Rain Dove, and formerly was known as the Carolina Pigeon or Carolina Turtledove.
