This afternoon there were several juncos at our feeding station. Despite 
multiple other offerings, 3 of them flew up to a side porch railing and began 
attempting to use a Niger seed sock. Not being able to hang from it and pull 
out the seed, they perfected a different method. They took turns standing on a 
block of wood on the railing, so they were about 8" below the sock, then they 
jumped up and butted the sock with their head. This dislodged 2 or 3 seeds at a 
time which they gobbled up! Everything is quiet out there now but this behavior 
lasted for about 20 minutes.Colleen Richards
