Feeder Style

House finches were hanging around the bird feeders last week in the section of Central Park called the Ramble. Click to enlarge. 
In this picture a few of them are gathered on one of the homemade feeders -- a plastic bottle full of seeds with a hole and a perch on each side. The finches perch, reach in to take a seed, fly away. 

Then this white-breasted nuthatch showed up. 
Perch. Check. Reach in to take a seed? Nope -- it jumped inside and disappeared. 
After a moment it came out the other side, like a fast food drive through. 
A black-capped chickadee showed up. It went in one door and out the other, too. It's a thing!
