In the center of my garden is a six-foot tall double shepherd’s hook. Hanging from the shepherd’s hook is a regular seed-holding birdfeeder, a thistle seed-holding birdfeeder, and two suet cages. I just looked outside, and there’s a HUGE flock of birds in my garden, flittering around the feeders and hopping about on the ground. They’ve eaten almost all of the regular seed. I think I may have to convert my thistle feeder into a regular feeder until Spring, when the finches come back. But Wow! that’s a lot of birds! I’m just glad I filled the feeder yesterday, before it snowed.
