Barbara, glad I could help. Enjoy those siskins - they're interesting visitors!


Nancy thanks so much - I just noticed yesterday that there are tons of siskins at my feeders and your advice is most welcome. I'm not sure about the nijer seed but I cleaned that feeder and two others recently... And I was really surprised that I could get within two or three feet of the pine siskins. They kept an eye on me, but mostly just ate and ate - and ate! thanks again.

  • 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.
