Re: mustard/kale/birds

We have the Red-headed and in the past I have seen a huge Yellow bellied Flicker. I need to look out to the flowerbed with the goldenrod and see if they eat mine. It is further out from the house so I don't see it from the window.

We've had birds galore here, including 5 Pine Siskins that haven't been here
in several years. We have both Downy and Red-Bellied Woodpeckers as regular
visitors. Every now and then we get a Red-Headed or Pileated. Haven't seen a
Hairy in years. What woodpeckers do you have?

The goldfinches have been working over the goldenrod seedheads, though also
chowing down at the thistle feeder. It's fun to watch them bobbing up and
down, up-and-down on the seedstalks.

Thank you that is a good idea. I love color in the winter.
My birds returned this past week.... the goldfinches and woodpeckers are
busy eating at the birdfeeders this morning.
