Last summer we planted sunflower seeds in our backyard. To our suprise these finches came for the seeds as the flowers bloomed. It was the highlight of our day when they showed up. We had to carefully hide behind the curtains and peer out so we wouldn't scare them off. We had not planted the seeds with the intent of attracting and watching birds, but I think in the future we will.
