Well, I take it all back. The Goldfinches discovered the nyjer bag today. I may have to re-think my see budget, as they ate all the black seed and the mix over the weekend.

I live in a new neighborhood and there aren’t a lot of full-grown trees, which makes it tough to attract birds. So I added some driftwood to my feeder stand, and the number of birds has increased dramatically. Mr. Goldfinch seems to like to perch on the wood until Mrs. is done.

Spent a fun morning with a fling of Whimbrels on the beach in Lincoln City. It’s crazy to think about these beautiful curlews working their way to the subarctic to breed. Beach bums indeed.
