The title of your article about finches [“A frenzy of finches,” January/February, 2016] really hit home at our house! We put out a feeder specifically designed for finches this year, and the results have been spectacular at times. The thistle seed has brought them like oiled sunflower never has in the past.
I’m attaching a photo that will illustrate. After the birds grab some seed at the feeders, they often land in the cherry tree that is outside our living-room window.
