The feeder is hung from a huge, old, oak tree in our front yard and it creates a lovely shady oasis. I enjoy looking out the kitchen window at the feeder while I'm doing the dishes or tidying up, for some reason I never tire of watching the birds' antics.

My Kitchen Window
Although the image is fairly small it did come out better than I expected. As I was doing dishes one morning I saw a male and female goldfinch, one on each side of the thistle feeder. It was quite comical, the male would take a seed and while he was eating it the female would take a seed. The process would be repeated so that they were alternately pecking at the feeder and it struck me quite funny. Maybe you had to be there to appreciate the humor.
