Greenfinch



The bird feeders are being depleted at an incredible rate just now. The Greenfinches used the feeders for a while, then departed and now are back again.

We've also got a couple of Starlings who have managed to work out how to eat from the seed feeder, although the amount of energy used fluttering their wings as they feed must quickly burn up the food consumed.

I decided to put out a bird feeder for the first time last month.
It said on the bird seed packet " the birds may take a week or two to get accustomed to the feeder".

Ha! I filled it, hung it up then went inside. Half an hour or so later went outside and it was EMPTY. Repeated. Same thing. I went through a £4 bag of bird seed in about two days. Talk about a free lunch!
They are all Gods creatures - but he can feed them from now on.
