Thank you! We live in West Richland, Washington. These little guys usually go away in the winter, but I learned that if you feed them year round, they will stay. And, wow, do they multiply! I feel so honored that they are here! My husband has a fit at the cost to feed them, but they make me so happy to watch them. They eat thistle. And thistle around here has gone through the roof in price. He just paid $45.00 for 20 lbs. of it at PetSmart. That's only because WalMart was out of it. My honey loves me. But, if you don't feed them, they will go away. And I love listening to all of the sounds we have here. We have quite the mix! I feel very blessed!
