There had been a bird seed store (The Nest) in Kenosha that had quite a feeder system outside in back that brought in the European Goldfinches that had been surviving in that area in the wonderful Wisconsin winters. Quite a sight to see! Since the store closed last year, might anyone have a regular location where they are appearing around Kenosha or elsewhere? I was hoping that the "flock" found another good feeder system in the area, and someone was aware of it. I had a good reply from a Racine birder that Pike River pathway, and Racine County Fairgrounds have had some, but these are few and far between. A couple seasons ago there was one at a feeder in the Waukesha Kettle Moraine by Emma F. Carlin trail I know the bird's an escapee or release that survived their release, but it is sure a pretty bird. Thanks for any tips! Spence Spence Stehno, Waukesha.
