I have a feeder newly installed (9 days) on my bedroom window. First three days no customers. Father cardinal appeared on the next day. Then the chikadees discovered it. Then the tufted titmice (titmouses?).
I keep the blinds open. I have noticed that the chikadees are the most active, but the titmice are the bravest. They will come and feed while looking me in the eye two feet away. The cardinals are the biggest of the visitors, but also the most cowardly.
For some reason, yellow seems to help birds “find” your new feeders more quickly, at least according to my local bird experts. I tied a piece of yellow ribbon, not around the ol’ oak tree, but around the top loop of the new feeder, and it seemed to work.
Random Friar: Interesting!
Yellow does attract the Goldfinches specifically. I have an ‘up-side down’ thistle feeder for the Goldfinches – the tiny holes are beneath the perches, only the indomitable Goldfinches can hang up-side down on the perch and eat to their little hearts content.
Other less acrobatic birds can’t do it!
p.s. The cap on the tube-style thistle feeder is yellow.
