Siskin thread is interesting. Thornton Creek is only about ten miles inland from Newport. I have seen siskins here precisely twice this year: one bird a couple months ago, and a small flock about two weeks ago. Otherwise, none at all.

Red Crossbills thick at Floras Lake today in the Sitka spruce. A few siskins too but nothing like a month ago.
After an influx into Lincoln County starting
slowly in late July and building to large numbers
present in October, Siskins have now rapidly
and apparently virtually completely cleared out
of this area. The last ebird report for the county
was Nov. 3.
Small numbers of crossbills are still around
although tougher to find than a few weeks ago.
