First siskin

Today there was a male siskin on the feeders, the first of this season.  Last winter I saw none in the garden - the sitka spruce seed crop was so good that the siskins didn't need to forage farther afield.  I usually see them in the garden only towards the end of the winter so seeing one this early is a good sign.  Sorry it's on a feeder but if it returns I'll try to get a better picture.

  1. Interestingly we've had siskins on and off throughout the summer, max two at a time only.
