Response so far indicates that there are still plenty of Pine Siskins still around -- we've beaten that subject to death. Audubon (SCVAS) is putting together a feeder recommendation to be sent soon, and I hope that it will be updated as the situation changes, for those of you who may have been motivated by that concern.
To keep track of local Pine Siskin sightings, eBird has a report here <https://ebird.org/species/pinsis/US-CA-085> with a bar chart that suggests that it'll be a couple of months before the local population drops away.
In general, you can go to *ebird.org <http://ebird.org>*, click on *Explore*, click on *Species Maps*, and choose a species and location (hotspot, town, county, etc.) to get a map of sightings, with the last week in red. That's a much more complete and less invasive approach than asking 1200 SBB members for individual memories. :-)
Happy birding! Jim Dehnert, list administrator
