My birds are back! It's a Simple Pleasure.
Each winter, I put up finch feeders outside our family room window and start buying that expensive black thistle seed to keep them filled. Goldfinches are such wasteful little creatures, covering the ground with black hulls. I also put up a feeder of black oil sunflower seed, which juncoes and chickadees enjoy...along with the handful of house finches that visit. As for the goldfinches, I continue feeding them into the warm weather of early summer and then wean them off the easy feeding. Last week, I put up my feeders after the first (early) snow. It took only one day for the flocks to descend. They are a beautiful Simple Pleasure, so I'm linking up with Dayle's blog.
