Finch feeder

Asked September 26, 2019, 6:40 PM EDT

Friend has same finch feeder, very successful. Mine is the exact same feeder, same food, hung last spring, haven't seen a single bird. 10' off ground, hung from a tree limb, 20' from house, 15' from two tall evergreen bushes, 25' from flowing water. Any ideas why I have not had birds? My songbird feeder is 50' away and very busy. Thanks! Jon

Hello,

Here are links to two articles I think you will find helpful in attracting finches to your birdfeeder:

Thanks for the question!
