help with proofreading marks

will you check to see if I identified all the proofreading marks in this paragraph.

finches are common through out most of North America, but their winter plumage
is much duller thant that of the males spring and early summer plumage that they
are often misidentified, in other seasons.  They can be identified by their short,
conical bill; small head, long wings; and short, notched tail.  golfinches can often be seen
around bird feeders.  They like to eat the seeds that fall on the ground beneath the
1.  period after feeders in last sentence.
