I had a pleasant surprise this afternoon when a pair of Pine Siskins appeared in the yard here in Wyandotte! They stayed only a few moments, eyeing the niger thistle feeders, but couldn't get close enough without experiencing the wrath of a dozen House Sparrows that were covering the socks. I managed a couple of quick pics through the back window.
Reports have been coming in from all over SE Michigan with sightings of flocks of Pine Siskins. It appears that Ron Pittaway's Winter Finch Forecast is coming true already! Bring on the winter birds!
