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.
