Linda in Poughkeepsie - keep us posted, ok?


I still have Pine Siskens at my feeders in Poughkeepsie. Now that I have read about the nesting behaviors, I will keep my eyes open for fledglings being fed. Thanks for the great information.

Larry - please keep me posted from CT.


I saw reports of siskins in CT up until about a week ago.-I was actually tired of seeing them over the winter but will be excited to see them again now.

Michael - thanks for the report. Looks like you're somewhat local - what town?

We had a few Pine Siskins feeding late last week. Haven't seen any since. They probably moved on.

  • Our eyes and ears should be open and alert to the natural wonders that surround us every day. Take time to look out our windows to see the birds that visit us and open our windows to hear them. Walk around whatever space we have to enjoy the birds in nature. Every day, work on improving our powers of observation.


  • Nature happens. We cannot MAKE natural things happen (or NOT happen). We can create habitats to encourage natural things to happen around us, but there are no guarantees.


  • Birdfeeding comes with responsibilities to the birds and the environment we share with them. If you are unwilling to accept these responsibilities, you shouldn’t feed the birds. We also have a responsibility to share these natural wonders with the next generation.
