HOW TO ATTRACT GOLD FINCHES AGAIN?

by Ana
(Columbus, OH)

Hi,

A question for anyone who can help. Just moved to a new house in the same city. I used to have several feeders and was attracting many kinds of birds. Right now I only have an upside down thistle feeder that the gold finches used to love and occasionally some chickadees. It has been out for 3 weeks now and not a single bird in sight. Should I wait longer? It's pretty visible also, at the other place it was pretty hidden in a tree and they managed to find it. Am I doing anything wrong? Thanks to anyone who can help...

Possibly Ana, the goldfinches haven't arrived to your neck of the woods. They are still migrating north. Mine just arrived on Saturday. Our readers have some other suggestions, though...

Thanks a lot Fred!

I'm in the process of installing my other feeders, see if I will attract them then!

Hi Anna,
Im from ohio also, Hey I have more goldfinches eating sunflower seeds than niger seeds. I have 3 niger seed feeders out but they like the sunflower seeds better.

They are now yellow and just started turning on 3-21-2011 . Keep those feeders out there you will get them.
