Goldfinches

by Jim in IA

We are trying out a new type of feeder for the little finches. It’s a woven nylon mesh that hold Niger thistle seed. I hung this up close to the window on the second floor so the deer and raccoons wouldn’t get at it. And, it puts them up close for good views.

The main visitors are goldfinches and pine siskins. We are looking forward to the spring when the goldfinches have ripened into their bright yellow plummage.

We also noticed this odd hanging object a few days ago. It is about the size of a softball. Any ideas what it might be?
