Who might be stopping by this winter
As fall migration waxes on, keep your eyes out for this fellow who might be coming to spend the winter in your back yard--he's been spotted many times throughout the last few weeks and its a great bird to add to your life list. Pine siskins are small songbirds who travel in large flocks. They migrate towards nyjer seed feeders and are fairly advantageous when it comes to finding food. They have sharp pointed bills and sharp notched tails. Pine Siskins are very vocal birds and commonly utter a harsh, rising call: zzzrrreeeee? Also a variety of thin, high twitters, often in paired notes: twee-twee, jee-jee, twee-twee! Keep your eyes (and ears) peeled for this little guy this winter!
