In April, we had several Gold Finches and other birds visit our backyard. We have setup several feeders with Safflower seeds and one with Thistle/Niger. The Thistle seed feeder is attached to the deck and the Safflower seed feeder hangs from a Shepherd's hook, but it is not too close to the home.
I still see a few finches come by in the afternoon, but not as many as last month. I will make sure the feeder is clean; especially, the Niger feeder.
