Gold Finches - A backyard treat!

(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!
