When Do Finches Stop Feeding

Question From: M. Byrnes - NEW JERSEY
Q: When do finches stop feeding in the Northeast? I'm in southern New Jersey and haven't seen them at my feeders for about 2 weeks now. Thank you.


Mindy, you are the second person to ask that question today. Finches stop feeding when they feel threatened by a predator. Could be a bird, a cat or just the perception of danger. Moving the feeder for a time usually stimulates them to feed again. Best and Happy Yardening, Nancy

Q: So when do Finches stop feeding in the Northeast??? Do they fly south for the winter and when would that be?


Some finches migrate and others do not. Check the website of Wildbirds Unlimited for more information on these and other birds that inhabit your area. Best and Happy Yardening, Nancy.
