Lesser Goldfinches are Back!

August 25, 2017

After months of refusing to eat Nyjer (Guizotia abyssinica) seed, Lesser Goldfinches have returned to feeders in a big way.  It’s not fully understood why goldfinches sometimes stay away from Nyjer; this time it might have had something to do with last winter’s rains producing a plentiful native seed crop.  Whatever it was, we’re happy to have our LEGOs back!
