The goldfinches have been very busy devouring the seeds from this tree this winter. It is a habitat and shelter for all kinds of birds, and the cardinals and others may be feasting on the seeds as well.

I was very surprised to see the finches in my sweet birch this winter eating the catkins.

That's interesting. I usually have a lot of feeders out there, and I think I was focused on those and didn't notice the birds eating the seeds much before.
