Gold Finches - A backyard treat!

by Sunny
(Aloha, Oregon)

We enjoy numerous gold finches in our backyard each summer. And, as much as we'd like to think it's our delightful arrangement of plantings - it's not. They love the thistle in feeder.

Put thistle in your feeder and the birds will come and you'll need lots of perches to satisfy the flock!

Thank you Sunny for the tip!
