Goldfinches will hang around during Florida's mild winter and spring. Sometimes they stay through May, but usually I stop seeing them here in April when they migrate back to the north. That's also when the male plumage begins to molt into the brilliant golden color they are recognized by. I'm completely ecstatic Goldfinches have chosen to visit Hoe and Shovel each winter and spring. If I was a Goldfinch I'd rather be in a Florida garden also. :-)
Here is a link to a YouTube video of the Goldfinches in my garden in Spring 2011.
