The Pine Siskins are here!
Pine Siskins are winter visitors to our feeders and then usually on an irregular basis unless we get an "irruption". Because of a low food supply in the north, the birds fly south in search of food. The first Pine Siskins were in our area back before Christmas, but there must have been a glut of wild food to keep them away from our feeders. This may have now run out as more and more are hitting the feeders throughout WNC.
Siskins will eat almost any seed, but like our American Goldfinches, prefer thistle (Nyjer) seed or Finch Blend. The latter is Nyjer seed mixed with finely ground sunflower chips - see the photo below. Thistle and Finch Mix can dry out quickly, so it's best to buy it in small quantities to start with. Also keep it in the crisper in your refrigerator to prevent drying out and to make it last a little longer.
We are just one mile north of our old location on the right in Gerber Village at 10 Crispin Court, Suite D-102, Asheville, NC 28803. We are in the old Wine Styles location in the corner just up from Frankie Bones.
