My golden finch
by Chris Donovan
Every afternoon a golden finch comes an sits for a while om my cheap plastic lantern type bird feeder bought for just $3.00 at the store. I fill the lantern every day with oiled black sunflower seeds and also sunflower seeds that have already been removed from their pods.
The golden finch sits for about 10 minutes and eats as the lantern hangs about 8 feet from the ground attached to a branch on a tree. I have tried twice now to catch him on camera ( attached to my cell phone) however I can't get a clear enough picture through the glass and whenever I try to get the door open , the finch hears the noise and flys away.
If I was to stand out there all day with a proper camera all day , well maybe then I could get a good picture however he doesn't turn up at the same time every day and personally I don't have that much time to waste.
One day I will get the pic I need a post it here for all to see.
