Incoming Call: Birds to Your Feeder

Anyone who feeds birds knows that sometimes, your “regulars” leave town and your once-bustling birdfeeder sits vacant. This especially happens at finch feeders, designed to accommodate only the smallest songbirds. Goldfinches can be found in most places in the US year ‘round, but many migrate short distances. This means that YOUR finches may have flown a few area codes south this time of year, and the new finch arrivals may not have found your feeder. Many people enjoy birdwatching as part of their daily routine. In fact, it’s not uncommon for us to get calls asking for tips to attract birds. So…


Here it is, we are going to share with all of you our “silver-bullet” for attracting goldfinches to your Mr. Canary® finch feeder! Drumroll please…   …   …   …   …   … The secret is the “Dinnersong” goldfinch MP3 recording. Available for purchase online, this song when played on an MP3 player, or your smartphone, is stellar at calling in goldfinches to your feeder. Simply place the device on “Repeat” and let the recording play over and over again near the feeder. Be sure to play the recording at a normal bird-level volume. Do this, and more often than not, you’ll successfully attract a new batch of finches who will come to see what all the chirping is about!

Let us know how this works for you!
