    Crowded Thistle Bird Feeder?

    thistle bird feederIf finches are flocking to your thistle bird feeder in droves, it may be time to add more feeders!  Not the same tube type feeders, but inexpensive thistle socks, made of mesh with a simple drawstring closure.  They are highly effective at giving finches their “needed” space to feed.

    Since the socks, or sack is mesh, the whole surface offers feeding space. They do not have to be cleaned, and are meant to be disposable after they become worn and tattered.  You can get hundreds of feeders from just one thistle sock.

    Goldfinches, unlike other birds, are non-aggressive around feeders. Instaed of fighting for food, they are apt to just give up.  So by adding another thistle bird feeder or two, you can accommodate more Goldfinches inexpensively, and effectively!thistle bird feeder

    What Makes a Great Finch Bird Feeder?

    24 Birds in Full View!
    24 Birds in Full View!

    We feed wild birds because we like bird watching, offering up seed, nuts, fruit, suet, worms, and a myriad of other wild bird delights!  In hopes of helping our feathered friends to thrive, it’s the hobby of backyard birding that has become so popular.  Some bird feeders are more functional than others, they look good, but you can’t always view the birds while they’re eating.  Most tube bird feeders obstruct the view of birds who are feeding at the ports on the back side.

    Now there is a Finch Bird Feeder that allows full view of all 24 ports at once.  The “Finches Favorite” 3-Tube Bird Feeder offers up thistle seed like no other.  It allows better distribution of seed, so the seed at the bottom of the tube never gets packed down, when it then becomes damp and moldy.  A great new innovative product, it’s worth checking into if you feed thistle, or nyjer seed in your yard.

    Spring is just around the corner….and it promises that birds who have gone elsewhere for the winter will soon be returning and bringing more color and activity to our backyards.  Very soon you can see brilliant Bluebirds, Dazzling acrobatic Hummingbirds, Bright Goldfinches, Orange Orioles, & more in your yard!

    Best of all you don’t have to keep just bird feeders full of seed to attract them.  Water, nesting material, native plants, fruit, and sugar can be instrumental in attracting these and other colorful spring birds.  Don’t forget too, that now is the time to clean out, check, and repair any nest boxes you have.
