A Pine Siskin in Bird Alley this morning accompanying an American Tree Sparrow was quite a lovely surprise. It has been quite a while since we have had a pine siskin visitin. We remember other occasions when the ground in our feeder area would be carpeted with these birds!. Welcome little Siskin!
Another new arrival today in Bird.Alley today was a female Red-winged Blackbird(.shown above and just below) We haven't seen this bird for quite a while, so it was a welcome sighting.
Also today we have had both male and female Purple Finch in our feeder area as well as White-throated Sparrows.
