Pine Cones.......


My blue spruce is putting out cones at the top of the tree.  I have seen every kind of bird in the tree. I know that a pair of house finches did raise a batch of babies among the branches. Those young ones frequent the seed sock learning how to feed at it.  One young one spent a long time trying to see if he could get seed out of the knot at the top of the sock. I suspect that there are a lot of insects on the evergreen and that is one of the draws for the birds.
