I'm sure many folks have heard about and even experienced the irruption of Pine Siskins that has occurred this year. Our feeders have been no exception to this phenomenon. I've heard folks saying that they are such bullies at their feeders, and I guess they've pretty much shoved the Goldfinches out of the way at our feeders, too. But, it's been nice to have them around, nonetheless.
When the thistle feeder is too occupied, they pile up wherever else they can to get a bite. Poor little lonely Goldfinch (back left corner).
I was very surprised to see them eating both Zick Dough and regular suet.
Wait, no one told me we were having birdy yoga! I forgot my mat!
Bendy Bird - ENHANCE!
When you catch them alone, they look pretty sweet, don't they?
An agressive bird at the feeders? Who, little 'ol me?
