For Tomcat who has found scientific proof that black sunflower seeds are the best. But Mrs Greenfinch loves her junk food! And she is really good at splitting them. Taken today, the weather was no good I'm afraid.

____________
many thanks for all your kind votes and comments for the chilled goldfinch.

Please treat the above comment with the contempt it deservesWink

The odd time when the Greenfinches pop into the woods, usually when I am having ten minutes in the hide, after topping up the feeders, they are straight to the Black sunflower seeds

Don't bother with the Niger

They want that oilWink

The light, colours and details in V2 seem much better so it gets my vote today! We can hardly keep up with the demands for white sunflower hearts at our feeders. We used to offer the black ones but were then wading through layers of them all over the paths, etc and carrying the husks in on the soles of our shoes! We've had no complains to date regarding the change!! Grin
