    What is that thistle sock ?

    Hi Sandeepa, thanks for the kind words. Thistle sock is a special feeder for finches. It holds thistle seed (also called niger). You can buy them in bird stores or sometimes department stores in the garden center section. This year I have seen some pre-filled. Hang it on a tree and watch what flies in for lunch! 🙂
