A couple of years ago I had many, many pine siskins at my feeders. This year I haven't seen any...so far. But I do have zillions of goldfinches, birds that the pine siskins like to hang around with at feeders. So maybe the pine siskins will be here soon!

Eileen,

Really nice photo! We had one siskin for 3 minutes here this year. Pretty rare here.

Well lighted and very pretty!

Gary said...

Great photo, and I'm jealous I haven't seen any of these guys. Send some over. Boom & Gary of The Vermilon River, Canada.

Like EG Wow, a couple of years ago, we had 100 or 200 Pine Siskins here. There were too many --so I was glad last year when they didn't come back.. AND--so far this year they are not here again...

We are over-run with Goldfinches though.... But--they are such sweet little birds...

Beautiful picture of the Pine Siskin.
Hugs,
Betsy
