Feed sunflower hearts. Between the feeders and the ground below them I have seen 40+ goldfinches. A wonderful sight.

I find it a little strange that your offer of hospitality is being ignored by the Goldfinch :shrug: Perhaps they are not happy where the feeders are hanging but normally there is always a few that are prepared to chance their luck. :)

Goldfinches have got me at my wits end 15 on the tree looking at me , they leave to go across to my neighbours Rowan tree and she feeds fat balls and peanuts. :shrug: banghead :chuckle:
