    WYhere are yellow finches that come to my feeders all year round. Not everyone feeds birds in the winter when they need it most. I also buy good quality seed so I get all kinds of birds no one else gets. i love seeing the yellow finches all year round!

    In my area, finches morph into bright yellow plumage starting in early spring from their fall colors of duller brown, tan or dark green. These same finches remain in our yard year-round, and when their plumage starts to yellow, it happens just around the time of the arrival of the redwing blackbirds...A true sign of spring!

    Yes, I do. I have put out finch socks for several years now and they attract several kinds of finches. Some with small red heads and, of course, the yellow ones. I find that, just like cardinals, they usually come is 2's. Male and female. I wonder why the more colorful birds are the males. Not at all like us humans, lol
