This is 1 of Our Most Colourful i think Bernieh ? This pic was taken just 10/15mins ago "11,30am" its the 1st time iv seen 1 of the Gold Finches eat any where but the Niger Feeder i have :)

I think you may be right - it is definitely one of the most colourful birds. Keep those dandelions - especially if you get visitors like this that like to munch on the seeds.

I saw some Niger seed 'cheap' this morning! First time I have bought any. Not sure what to put it in - does it need a special feeder or can I just scatter it?

My friend rang at the weekend to ask me to identify some birds in his garden knowing I'm a bit of a bird watcher on the quiet. I said they sound like golfinches and that the like to eat dandelion seeds. He said "that's exactly what they are doing!", obviously impressed at my Bill Oddy type knowledge. I failed to mention that I only knew this from seeing your pic a couple of days before!

11 May, 2009

 

I've seen them eating dandelion seeds in my garden too, but they normally eat only the niger seed. Adorable birds!
