About 10 Pine Siskins showed up at my feeders yesterday. There are still some around this morning, along with 3 Evening Grosbeaks. Great way to start November, with a life bird.
Yesterday also brought FOS for the yard: Ruby- and Golden-Crowned Kinglets, Junco, and White-throated Sparrow.
In addition to feeding on the nyjer and hulled sunflower (which they seemed ot prefer), the Siskins spent a good bit of time on the Brown-eyed Susans, ignorning the Bergamot and Boneset. The G-C Kinglet was feeding on the Boneset for a couple of hours -- I didn't realize there were still enough small insects around for this.
