This morning I saw a sparrow hawk move horizontally into my pear tree where the niger seed bird feeder is and grab a goldfinch, he moved incredibly fast. Earlier this year a sparrow hawk killed 10 of the11 gold finches that were feeding here. BUT janfran's brillant idea for keeping starlings away from the bird food could work well for protecting the goldfinches whilst they feed. I just have to figure out the logistics for re-filling.
