FINICKY FINCHES

|

Several FrontBurnervian Birders have e-mailed me with questions about goldfinches. Seems the ones that eventually showed up to their feeders are now MIA. Here’s the deal: you have to change the thistle right after a rain. Goldfinches are very picky. They don’t like clumps, they like dry little niger thistle seeds. Yesterday, I dumped a full feeder onto the ground and refilled it. Before I shut my backdoor, there were six goldfinches back on the feeder.
