Happy Wednesday! ~ 275
More bird stuff today. I’ve been perplexed because I haven’t been able to attract the kind of birds I want to and one of them is the Gold Finch. Occasionally one will come around but they get chased off by the larger and more aggressive birds. I was talking to my friend Steve today (he is really into birds as well) and he gave me some good things to think about.
So when I got back to Dubuque last evening I stopped at Menards to see what they had in the way of bird seed. It is closer to stop there but they don’t have as large of selection that Theisens has.
Anyway I got the idea to move the thistle feeder away from the rest of the feeders so the other birds wouldn’t bother the finch. Since he is one of the few that actually eat the thistle I reasoned that he would be by himself at that feeder and perhaps he would tell his mates about it and then we’d have more finches.
Well at first I was ready to declare success as he did indeed go to the thistle feeder but then he went to some of the other ones as well and didn’t seem to mind the bigger birds. So much for my well thought out plan. 🙂
That’s all I have for you today. I fresh out of wisdom, important things to talk about, and gossip.
Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy your midweek hump day and be careful.
