Earlier this week, a flock of pine siskins invaded Lyle Anderson’s feeders on Park Point for about two hours, then left as suddenly as they arrived. For those two hours, “they were all over — on the feeders, on the ground and in the trees,” Lyle writes.
Fortunately, he got a couple of pictures:
As I look at these pictures, I realize the finches I had on my thistle feeders for a couple of mornings this week probably also were siskins. It was still pretty dark when they came by, and I didn’t get a real good look.
Lyle also has had some nuthatches, and got a picture of this one:
I’ve seen several white-breasted nuthatches like this one, but I haven’t yet seen a red-breasted nuthatch so far this fall/winter season. Has anyone?
