The weather was lovely this past weekend. Lots of sunshine and highs in the low 50s F although a little windy. I took full advantage of my “lazy birder” setup and got many photos of bird activity around the feeders. The goldfinches nearly filled all available perches at the thistle seed feeder (see the 2 sets of tail feathers peaking out from behind the feeder?).
So I cut some of the coneflower seedheads from the front garden and wove their stems into the latticework of our trellis to see if any goldfinches would go to that instead of the feeder. At least one goldie seems to approve.
Down below the thistle seed feeder, a mourning dove scavenges the spilled seed.
