It's no wonder all these birds keep coming back to your restaurant you have such an assortment t of seeds for them!!!

Over here, they are called Lesser Gold Finches. I only see them in Winter here....I've been told that this is the Winter color for the American Goldfinch, but I didn't verify that information. I quit feeding them because of the mess and they were wasting a lot of sunflower seeds which have become fairly expensive (double the price) in recent years. I used to feed 50 pounds of seeds per week in the Winter months in three feeders. The more I put out, the more birds would come...mostly the ones you posted here (in huge numbers). I do miss the other birds that would come in fewer numbers.

I like to look after them...:))

That's an awful lot of seed to put out....I thought I was generous with them! I provide sunflower hearts, suet pellets and dried mealworms.....and have to refill the dish and surrounding wall at least three times a day! Gives me plenty of entertainment:))
