After weeks and weeks of hanging a niger seed feeder out to attract goldfinches they eventually found it. We have had to buy a bigger feeder with more ports to keep the six or seven we frequently now get happy. This picture shows only 3, they are so hard to photograph as they are really twitchy and fly off at the slightest thing. I'll keep trying to get a full feeder photographed. These are lovely little birds, they don't squabble over the feeder, they don't bother other birds and their song is soft and warbling, you need to listen carefully to hear it. I'm glad they visit us.
