Seed Thief

BLOG 20110706 SEED THIEVES 8 2 2Finches love zinnias and other flowers they can easily pluck seeds and tasty bits from such as cone flowers, sun flowers and so on. A few summers ago, I tossed a handful of zinnia seeds into some pots on my back deck and enjoyed repeat blooms for weeks.

And so did the finches. It was a finch feast.

This fellow figured out the easiest way to balance his weight on the stems and be best-positioned to still be able to snack on the flower head. Smart little things!
