Just before it got dark today I had a quick check of my feeders and couldn't believe my eyes to see a Goldfinch trapped inside my nyger seed tube feeder. The poor thing was trying desperately to get out but couldn't get a grip on the shiny plastic that the tube feeder is made of. The wind had blown the top off the feeder so that there was a big enough gap at the top for the bird to get in.

  A quick rescue mission and the goldie was flying free. 

looking better than it did in the feeder.
Lucky that I had checked the feeders otherwise I don't think it would have survived the night.
