Last week, our daughter gave us a new thistle seed feeder, which we filled and hung immediately. The old reliable duct-tape feeder filled with black-oil sunflower seeds had been busy every day all summer, but the morning after its new companion went up, we had no birds at all. None at the new feeder. None at the old feeder. Zero. Apparently, they didn't like the changes to the neighborhood.
And then the second morning, the goldfinch flock sent a couple of brave scouts:
Little by little, they seemed to decide the new cafe' was worth patronizing.
Until now, we're filling both feeders every couple of days!
And we like it that way!
