Thanks to Lise for sharing her photo of birds in the buffet line! Before the day moves too much further along, four notes for tonight:

SOMETHING TO SAY ABOUT COMCAST? As noted here yesterday, the city is reviewing citizens’ opinion of its service, as it prepares a potential franchise renewal. The franchise technically only involves the cable-TV service, but the city also has been soliciting opinions regarding its Internet service as well. If you have something to say about Comcast service and/or how you think Seattle’s cable service should be, be at High Point Community Center at 6 pm. (6920 34th SW)

CUB SCOUT INFO NIGHT: 6:30 pm, it’s Cub Scout Pack 799’s “Join Scouting Night” at Arbor Heights Elementary. From the announcement: “We will have leaders from the Pack as well as the Seattle Scouting Council to talk to boys and their families about joining our exciting Pack. Boys who attend will have the chance to build their own Pinewood Derby Car, and then come back on Friday night to race their car in our Annual Pinewood Derby Race!” (37th/104th)

POETRY & STORYTELLING: Fourth Wednesday of the month means it’s time for poems and stories at C & P Coffee Company (WSB sponsor), 7-9 pm. (5612 California SW)

OPENING NIGHT FOR ‘HAIR’ AT ARTSWEST: The ’60s reappear in the ’10s! The new production at ArtsWest (WSB sponsor) opens tonight, curtain time 7:30 pm. (4711 California SW)

LAST DAY TO REGISTER FOR WEST SEATTLE COMMUNITY GARAGE SALE DAY: We opened registration three weeks ago, and tonight we close it just before midnight, so mapmaking can begin. If you haven’t signed up your sale for the big day (9 am-3 pm Saturday, May 10th) yet – hurry! Here’s the form.

  2. The sender didn’t mention an ID and I haven’t looked them up – so pretty, whatever they are!

  3. Yup a male and female gold finch. I would love to do bird feeding especially to take pictures but I don’t want all the rat problems that usually come from the seed dropping to the ground.

  4. Yes, they are gold finches. There is also a house finch which is not as visible on the inside left of the feeder.

    We use medium sunflower chips and have absolutely no issues with rats or seeds sprouting. The cost is a bit more but we have very little waste. The juncos take care of any seeds that fall to the ground.
