Feeder Style

House finches were hanging around the bird feeders last week in the section of Central Park called the Ramble.

In this picture a few of them are gathered on one of the homemade feeders — a plastic bottle full of seeds with a hole and a perch on each side.

The finches perch, reach in to take a seed, fly away.

Then this white-breasted showed up.
Perch. Check. Reach in to take a seed? Nope — it jumped inside and disappeared.
After a moment it came out the other side, like a fast food drive through.
A showed up. It went in one door and out the other, too. It’s a thing!
