The birds are back!

Saturday, 8 February 2014

I've been feeding the birds again since the beginning of winter and now my little golfinches are back!

They're quite funny ~ only two of them at a time can sit on the feeder, so the others wait hungrily in the tree and make little dashes over and back to try and take their turn. Sometimes there are little airborne fights and a fair bit of chirping as they jostle to get their fill.

We do see other birds in the garden, but I've never managed to get them to eat from the feeder. Goldfinches seem to love niger seed and the local pagent will eat almost the whole lot in a day. I've tried filling it with other types of food, but no-one seems to be interested!

If you have birds living near you, do you have any tips for me?
