Some months ago I visited the hides of Natura Prop in northern Catalonia.
A recently opened hide offered passerine birds in a beginning success story.
Goldfinches were plenty around and the clever idea of sticking several thistle plants (cardus) whose seeds are the favourites of these birds caused not only their prompt appearance but also added a satisfactory environment, more typical impossible "Goldfinch on Thistle plant", nearly kitsch!
The good thing is that a nice Dreamstime Editor chose one of the Goldfinch images as Editor's choice (thank you!) but the equally nice buyer who bought the following image didn't agree with the editor and preferred another "Goldfinch on Thistle plant" pic (I managed to get several accepted..) !
and this is the "Editor's Choice Pic":
