Do they hide food in the Y for future use?
Does it not get taken by other birds?

Yes they do...Tt.... They are engaging little wonders... they live in the boreal forests but frequent the urban feeders when they find their favourite seed...niger seed ...they are little tufts of feather, beak and feet...so tiny that I've often wondered how a little body like theirs could make and retain enough heat to survive!! I'm sure that each bird tries to keep his cache to himself...but when they find a feeder with suet and seeds they arrive in noisy, busy flocks!!
