We have had finch feeders that attract these beautiful gold finches, but the wind has destroyed our feeders – finch and wild bird. So, we got one of those pre-filled sock looking things, but the wind was still able to whip it around and knock a lot of the seed out. Well, we haven’t replaced any of our finch feeders because we figure why bother with this wind.
Well, the other day I noticed this beautiful fellow at our platform feeder, which really surprised me.
He keeps coming back for more,
even eating off the deck, and it is not thistle seed –
we watched him crack open this sunflower seed and eat the seed.
