I love these birds and we have them in our area from fall to spring. They have a beautiful song and seem to sing constantly. When they leave in the spring I really miss them they are so gorgeous. They love sunflower seeds and also steal the mealworms I have out for the Bluebirds! They will eat from feeders but seem to prefer ground feeding.
