Swarmed

The feeder in this post just wasn't cutting it for the number of goldfinches we had wanting to eat all day.

I had spotted a new feeder at the local bird store last week. I was picking up a hummingbird feeder that attached with suction cups to the glass on our back door. It's in the pictures you see in this post, along with some gel stick-ons to help convince the birds not to fly into the door.

Of course the hummingbird tried to drink from the yellow bumblebee stick-on today in between drinks from the feeder.

I'd thought the mesh bird feeder would be a great birthday present for Hubby in the middle of October. It's a very nice one that includes a lifetime warranty.

The birds weren't going to wait, or something like that. Hubby received a birthday song when he arrived home yesterday and an early gift.

The birds have been happy ever since.

It's not even that much bigger than the other feeder. It just doesn't minimize how many birds can fit on it by only having a certain number of perches. Although by the looks of things, we may be minimizing how many birds can fit on the thing pretty soon.

And a glass door that needs a good cleaning...

That is amazing! I love to watch the Goldfinches at my parent's house. I am going to have to see about getting a feeder!
