I planted sunflower seeds this spring anticipating great shots of cute little Lesser Goldfinches nibbling away on big beautiful sunflower blossoms. Instead I have ravenous little monster Goldfinches chomping away and annihilating all the sunflower leaves.  Go figure.

  2. Ha, ha, this made me laugh. I too planted sunflowers for the birds and have been blessed with Goldfinches and House Finches. A couple summers ago my son grew giant sunflowers in his yard and gave me one of the dried heads full of seeds. I put it out in July and no birds were interested in it for a month. Then in August I had a Black-headed Grosbeak who picked it clean! That is my plan for this year, so save some of those dried seed heads.
