Finches: Friday’s Feathered Friends

Throughout the winter, I rarely saw any birds at our feeders other than red-winged blackbirds. And they’re pretty enough, especially when the sun glints on that tiny streak of red on the wing. But, I must admit that it’s been nice to see the goldfinches return over the past week or so.

I mistakenly thought that finches only ate “finch seed”.  Wrong: this feeder is filled with sunflower seed.

Double-decker feeder being put to good use.

THIS is the place I expected to see the gold finches: on a “finch seed sock”, a Christmas gift from my friend, Donna, aka Bird Nerd.

Such sweet, pretty birds.

I had just taken this lighthouse feeder out of winter storage and filled it just a few minutes prior to these pictures.

Welcome back, little finches. Happy Spring!
