Goldfinch Abundance

jan2(z5 Illinois)December 2, 2006

Good Morning,

Has anyone else experienced an abundance of goldfinch this year? I've had thistle feeders up year round for years and this fall noticed that we had more birds than the 6 perch feeders could handle. So I bought 2 more and still have more birds than 4 feeders can handle. I'm filling the feeders up every other day, sometimes everyday. We love having them around and are happy that we have so many. Just wondering if other folks have alot of them this year.

We seem to have more goldfinches than usual at this time of year but I don't know if it's significant or just a fluke. Sorry I'm no help to you ;o)
