Birdies, where are you?

I bought a new bird feeder, yes because it looked pretty. I filled it with thistle seed, took the old feeder down and put this one up. That was days ago and I have not seen one bird on my new feeder. I was hoping to attract among others the Goldfinch but they apparently are flying all over the place and landing on every other feeder but this one. The other feeder is in a different spot with regular bird seed in it. They haven't been to that one either. Oh where oh where have you pretty birds gone? I miss you! I'm going to have to get the old grotty feeder back aren't I? Even the Grackles are ignoring the new one for crying out loud.


He's confused!

Apparently so is he.

  1. Strange, indeed. I can't imagine birds passing up a free meal! Maybe you should hang the old and the new together, in the old place.

  8. It's such a pretty feeder! Tell them to get used to it! I can't tell in the photo....does it have perches on it or just meant for hanging? Some times birds are slow to change, but goldfinches usually eat anywhere!

  9. Gee, I'd be all over that if I was a feathered little critter. That's a mighty nice feeder!

  10. This one is the thistle feeder? I can't see if there are perches or just the wire. Goldfinch can cling to the wire and even hang unside down for some of the thistle feeders but they are very shy and tentative and it may take a while. The most important thing about a feeder is that you can clean it properly and that it doesn't present an opportunity to harm any birds. So many feeders made are so inappropriate as being dangerous or not easy to clean. None of my feeders are 'pretty', the pretty ones are in the basement now as I found them to be impractical...What does the other feeder look like?

  13. This a very funny post. Even the birds have their own taste buds. Are they picky?

  14. I think the feeder is very pretty. Dumb birds. I'd eat out of it. (I think maybe you have spoiled your birds a bit?)

  15. LOL! to the animal captions. I'm sure they just have to get used to the new one. Don't worry, they'll come back.

  18. It is so pretty the new one but no fun if no birds, maybe they only have to get use to it...?
