Attracting Birds, Bird Food and Feeders | March 27, 2023
You might be surprised that many of us have goldfinches all winter… they just appear in their drab winter coats. Finches love to feed in groups. To attract a group (known as a charm) hang a Songbird Essentials 3-Tube Feeder in your backyard and fill it with our Songbird Essentials Fantastic Finch Mix. Goldfinches love this blend of nyjer thistle & fine-chopped sunflower, which contains only high-quality seed with no fillers! Also, offer thistle sacks to attract more Finches in the spring. Mel’s favorite is the large black thistle sack because the Finches’ brilliant yellow coats show up beautifully against the black.
These let 24 or more feed at once. it – Finches love it!

Focus on Binoculars This Spring!
Don’t miss viewing colorful Spring migrants up close and witness the excitement of Songbirds building a nest and raising their young. Our optics are also great for sporting events, vacations, and hunting. Binoculars make Great Mother’s Day & Father’s Day presents! Come in today and try a pair. We even offer “Test Drives – NO expectations or strings attached!” Details at the store. We guarantee no one (Big Boxes – websites) NO ONE beats our prices!
Binoculars help to bring birds closer and really are a must for every birdwatcher. You will be able to see things that previously went unnoticed. For example, watch the Tufted Titmouse pick up and drop several peanut pieces before it finds just the right one. Watch the male Northern Cardinal court the female by gently placing food in her mouth. Notice the changing colors of American Goldfinch as they begin to molt from summer to winter plumage. Later in the summer, watch several species bring their babies to your feeder to teach them to feed.
