Saw the finch yesterday and wanted to pass on this warning.  I was 
appraching the house very slowly as I did not want to spook any birds there. 
  Suddenly a small bird (Redpoll as it turned out) flew in front of my car 
and did not come out the other side.  By the time I stopped and backed up a 
little the Finch also flew in front of the car.  They were both eating the 
salt droppings off of cars in the roadway.  I could only think of the relief 
I did not runover or hit the star bird of the area.  My advice is to 
approach the site slowly as the feeders and birds are relatively close to 
the road.
