When we moved east to the Lakewood subdivision, my bird feeder combination changed. I just use one multi-grain hopper and three thistle feeders. This past Spring I had all the usual suspects as on the bench, but no chickadees or nuthatch. I heard them but no recorded visits. At the bench feeders, American goldfinch represented 99.9 percent of their species. But here at Lakewood, the lesser goldfinch was and continues to be the overwhelming visitor. They were the only recorded birds for my Thanksgiving count. Emily was right, "Hope is a thing with feathers."
