Pine Siskins

Just the other day I was thinking that the winter would pass by without having any Pine Siskins come this year.  Normally I have them around from December - March.  Today a flock of around 25 arrived and went through almost half of a thistle sock of seeds and devoured almost a block of suet


They are quite a lively bunch of little birds and I was so pleased they arrived.  Wherever they arrived from, they were certainly hungry.

Around me folks in Maine are seeing Pine Siskins with the Red Polls. I keep looking but none at our place yet, maybe there is still hope!

The big group has scattered however I did count 10 this morning. Maybe they are headed back up north. I was glad to finally see some this year.
