Gone Again

Goldfinches are fickle, fickle, fickle.  And they're unpredictable.  Feed them in winter, and they disappear in spring.  Put out seed they like, and they vanish.  We had finches galore this past winter (and House finches, AND siskins!) but I don't see any now.  The seed pig House Finches are a fixture, but the goldfinches follow their own beat.  And Lord knows where the little monsters got to.  From past experience I suspect they are not all that far away.  They may even be raiding other feeders given that seed volume is still a bit low.  We'll soon know if they stay away all summer!
