Finches: Ha! Try Again!

Readers may recall that I looked at my recent visit to Connecticut as a chance to reduce the finch load here.  And by that, I assumed a few days of empty, untended feeders would annoy the excess of House- and American Goldfinches and give them thoughts of going elsewhere.  This happened in February.  But not now.  Oh no.  Within a day and a half of my return and filling the feeders, the finches were back in force.  And this past week the sunflower seed has rapidly flowed out into the gullets of little stomachs with wings.  Well, go figure.  All I can do now is try and enjoy the Amazing Finch Eatery Show.  And maybe we'll try again in July.
