Goldfinches

Goldfinches at the SeattleBirdCam. I've add a soundtrack of three Goldfinch songs recorded the following week. The three songs are repeated for the length of the video.

Who eats the oranges on the feeder? I put 2 cut halves on the balconey with a nail through it, but there are no takers yet, not even the robins. Any ideas on how to advertise to the birds? The hummer's coming around now. Are the Chickadee's building their nests yet? In Magnolia, they are still in the courting phase, male feeding and serenading the female, although they have checked out the nest box and went inside a few weeks ago. How do I attract the goldfinches? I have a thistle seed sac out, but also no takers there, and I live right next to a park, so I don't know what else to do to get them to come to the feeder. Actually havn't seen or heard the goldfinches in my area at all, I have to go to Discovery park at the pond to see them. Wish I could get a more variety..

leanne, I put the orange slices out as an experiment. So far, no birds have even nibbled on them. Glad to hear that you're getting some hummingbirds at your feeder. I may move the camera around to look at my hummingbird feeder because we seem to have a pair of male & female hummers (nesting?) visiting it on a regular basis during the day.

Goldfinches only come by my feeder a few times a year - they seem to prefer the nearby brushy areas (Scotch Broom, blackberries)to my more wooded backyard. I put up a thistle feeder one year and got zero goldfinches.
