Where I used to live, on a more wooded lot about 50 km west of where I live now, there were Pine Siskins every winter. This is the first year I’ve noticed them here in Vernon Bridge. They’re about the same size as the Redpolls and a little smaller than the Goldfinch. They too travel in flocks, and there are probably about 20 around our feeders. They’re very aggressive, particularly with each other.
So, if you bird lovers are wondering what else we saw during the blizzard at the feeder (you couldn’t see beyond the feeders!) there were starlings at one point, crows and the occasional chickadee.
