Siskins are back on the feeders.......................................................................

I saw Siskins in my garden for the first time just a couple of weeks ago... and today I had some more.

The damage to the perches on the feeders is caused by the squirrels... who else?

 The Siskins hung around for about ten minutes or so...

...lovely little birds to watch.

 At least the metal feeders are still intact... although still quite easy to feed from.

Siskins are birds we've never had stop by here. I know they're frequent a bit further north of us. Beautiful birds and photos! The squirrels are relentless. I see my blog feed hasn't updated for you in over two weeks. I can't figure out what the problem is.

Sweet! Not only the great siskin images but that squirrel just makes my day...it's a great shot even tho they DO eat a lot of seed that's meant for birds.

Hi Andrew, Your Siskins are a very beautiful bird. Have a great week my friend.

the siskins are beautiful Drew but I know how totally FRUSTRATING it must be to find the squirrels invading your bird space. Do they cause any other damages elsewhere, would they get into house roofs etc?

Beautiful birds and the squirrel looks so cute but obviously causes a lot of damage.

Squirrels are hard to beat, aren't they? They do love black oil sunflower seeds!

Beautiful photos!
Siskins are moving through our area now on their way north to Canada.
Have a wonderful day!

Bet you we're delighted to get the Siskins back, ours never came again, or not that I have seen. Hope the knees are getting stronger. x

i like the tree rats, but they will make a mess of plastic feeders. Lovely siskins too.

We have pine siskins in Oregon and I love them ...I think yours are a little more colorful.

Last Fall, our feeders in Oregon were nearly destroyed by a flock of starlings, so we didn't need a squirrel ;>)

Siskins are great, aren't they.
