I think mine were house finches but, yes, every year they try to perch on the 
feeders and can't seem to figure out that there are no seeds in there. They 
also like my potted portulaca which I think is a member of the succulent 
family. They bite off the leaves for the moisture that leaks out.

Finches feeding at a hummingbird feeder? I had a call yesterday from a woman 
that said for 2 years straight she has had purple finches drinking from her 
hummer feeders.With the short beaks they have I find that pretty strange.
