>>> Back in spring 2009, Pine Siskins were confirmed or suspected of breeding in about half of the southern Lower Peninsula counties, where they typically never nest. In my own yard, I caught and banded a female in April that was clearly forming an egg, and in mid-May I banded at least one juvenile. Then they all left by late May...possibly breeding again farther north that summer.
