I can’t tweet. I’m not good at it. It doesn’t come naturally. That word tweet is for the birds!
It’s a luxury to live in Barcelona and have Greenfinches visit my Yankee Droll birdfeeder.
I imported my feeder from a big garden shop in a small village called Glenside in Pennsylvania. I love this place. The name sounds like a condom, but it’s a gardener’s dream.
Seems like pigeons pass on a parasite called Trichomonosis. Supposedly one in three Greenfinches die from this disease.
I’m advised to wash out the birdbath.
Those little grayish things on the right are little shells from the pipas (sunflower seeds) that pepper the colorful little seeds in the feeder. Greenfinches are crazy about pipas. Someone once told me: “Oh, no! Don’t give them pipas! It makes them fart!”
So, I really had to ask myself about this person’s advice. I mean…how did they know?
Off to work!
