We have many birds at our feeders... sunflower seed, platform with mixed 
seed, suet.  The seed feeders are emptied daily and the suet goes in less 
than a week.
Finches- house, purple, & gold.
Nuthatches, WB & RB
All expected Woodpeckers
Chickadees & titmouse,
Many mourning doves
Low numbers of cardinals
typical sparrows (not many usually)
