We are in a newer subdivision and there isn't much variety in the birds here since there are so few mature trees. We have plenty of sparrows and doves, a few eastern bluebirds and robins in the spring, and these beautiful goldfinches. Most of the year I just see sparrows so I'm very pleased when the colorful goldfinches show up at my feeders. I love to hear them sing.
I have the sock feeder and a nicer finch feeder in the same tree, but they prefer to eat their thistle seed from the sock feeder.
I didn't realize that doves like thistle seed, but they obviously do, because the doves are always coming to this feeder to eat. Maybe that's why the finches prefer the sock feeder, no doves to share with.
