They have a sweet song and readily come to the thistle feeder

Cute as a button, and quite tame. I love it when the clumsy little fledglings try to imitate their parents by clinging (unsuccessfully) to the tube feeder! These are fun to watch, and their calls are surprisingly loud for such a small bird.

Brushy, wild-type sunflowers attract this cutie. I always let a few volunteers grow for this reason.

The best way to attract these beautiful little birds is with a sock feeder full of nyger.
