Valentine's Day Fight...Featherweight Division

If you have bird food out, especially thistle, you've probably already had some Pine Siskins visit your feeders. If not, you will soon. I had 2 here on Wednesday and today there were 24+...the funny thing is, they are very social, traveling around in flocks...but they don't really get along at the feeder...

One of the scouts on Thursday:

Uh-oh, getting angry:

Defending it's turf...I mean sock...of thistle:

This poor lad was chased into the window...dazed but he recovered quickly:

I've been watching my thistle sock!! Lots of goldfinches, occasional house finches, but no siskins...

There's nothing like a day in the woods.....

Watch what you wish for...In 5 days I've gone through nearly 10 pounds of thistle!
