Goldfinches at the feeders

I cleaned and filled the bird feeders one morning earlier this week. I asked Suzi how long she thought until we’d have visitors. She was confident our feeders would see use by that same afternoon. And she was right!

I was at the computer with my back to the feeders when Suzi said there were 30 birds at the feeders. I thought she was exaggerating. When I turned around, I scared them away to a nearby tree. I counted as they returned. This time, Suzi was wrong. There were more than 50 goldfinches on the feeders and on the ground beneath!

The Goldfinches Return

A couple of weeks ago I cleaned and refilled the bird feeder. Today the goldfinches discovered my work.

At this rate, I’ll have to refill it by the end of the week.1No complaints here. They’re beautiful! :-)

Update. I already had to fill the feeder two days later. The finches seem to appreciate my thoughtfulness. :-)
