Finches: Better Than Budgies

There are folks who, unfortunately, keep exotic birds caged at home.  I'm not too crazy about the practice, but I understand the appeal.  Birds will lighten up any space and can entertain.  Now, if we remove the cage, and remove the room---and step outdoors, I think I have exactly the same thing.  And the birds are free.  Those darn House Finches practically live on the sunflower seed feeder: morning, noon, afternoon.  They might as well be pets.  I can enjoy their squabbling, cheeping, and feedtime antics every bit as much as the crazy old lady loves her budgies.  And House Finches dont' scream.  They're better than budgies!
