I think attracting Ericas requires providing shiny stones.  Maybe they're corvids?  :classic_blink:

Dunno, seems like the last Erica I tried to attract was more interested in money! Course, I didn't have any, so she didn't hang around for very long. A big shiny stone would have probably caught her eye for sure, but I couldn't afford one, so..............

I get a couple Birds at my Seed Feeders. I am from Lake County CA. I have Oak Titmouse, California Scrub Jay, California Towhee, Golden Crowned Sparrow, White Crowned Sparrow, House Sparrows, House Finches, Pine Siskin, and White Breasted Nuthatch. We have a lot of warblers and other birds here, even Lesser Goldfinches! Sadly, I haven't seen them at the feeders 😞

That’s not a bad list!

Has anyone seen house finches feed on suet? I have never seen any in my yard do so, but every other bird species seems to take a bite every now and then. 

Sometimes if my sunflower feeder is empty, they will peck at my suet for a bit then get bored and leave. It seems suet is not their first choice, but if it's all there is, they'll take it.

Time of the year to do a balancing act with filling feeders/suet.  Common Grackle and Red-winged Blackbirds have taken over and just decimate everything.  Other migrant seed-eaters haven’t shown up yet that I do want to hit the feeders.  May be time to pull all the platforms down.
