I read reports of more birds at birdbaths so I was not surprised that I, too, have many more than usual. However, what surprised me just now when I was cleaning out my birdbath and refilling it, a pine siskin came as I was filling it. I could have touched it, it was so close. But what was disturbing was that it seemed to struggle to swallow or breath. I misted water over it, and it seemed to appreciate it. We cannot get rain soon enough!
