Finches, Finches, Finches!

My bro-in-law, Kevin, and I were sitting at the kitchen table last Saturday morning watching the birds when several male and female House Finches decided to it was time for breakfast. About 6-8 converged all at once on our birdseed and sunflower feeders.



As a couple finches were waiting for their turn on the feeder, they did something we thought was very interesting. A few began to sip sugar water from the nearby hummingbird feeder. They lost interest in the birdseed feeders and began taking turns taking a drink!
