Goldfinch vole, pronounced (latin)- spīn-us micro-tus
The Mystic barn owl, Tyto alba, & goldfinch voles, Spinus Microtus, are flying voles that are native to North American regions that closely imitate male American goldfinch birds in appearance & most behaviors. Although, unlike goldfinches, they can open & eat hard shelled nuts. They favor wild nuts & seeds & they sometimes briefly appear at birdfeeders in early spring when food in scarce. During these occasional visits, they are oftentimes mistook as male American goldfinch with early summer breeding plumage. This species prefer to nest in & around wild hazelnut trees. They eat & store the tree nuts over the winter in deep hollowed dens in wild hazelnut trees.
