Susie Seeds

These (I think) Pine Siskins love hanging on the dried Black-eyed Susies and gorging on the seeds. You can tell I stood in the window and sketched these cuties.
I think they are Pine Siskins because of their dark markings whereas the Goldfinches don't have them (although they love these seeds also). Also have been seeing lots of White-breasted and Red-breasted Nuthatches and the little Juncos which I call 'Snowbirds'.
Winter certainly brings the birds to the feeders. I bought 50# of sunflower seeds so we can enjoy the birds more.
I love the way the birds blend in with the natural setting.


  1. Love your line work Teri. Another great ink sketch! Well done.

  2. Thanks Paula.
    I see I have some spam on here and can't remove it. :(

  3. Whoops, sorry, I can. I'm thinking of going to moderated comments so we don't have this problem, at least publicly.

    1. I took care of it, Teri, and now all comments will go through me. Tired of dealing with spam!

  4. Thanks Kate, but that is a LOT of work for you.
    What I did on my blog is use 'comment moderation sometimes' and made it for 10 days and that reduced 90% of my spam. I also don't get a comment if it is 'anonymou's even though 'anyone' can comment.
    I guess my bottom line is, I don't like that darn word verification.

    1. I don't think it'll be that much, Teri, but we'll see. If that's too much, I'll take your suggestion. But nope, I'm not using word verification, I HATE it. Comments will just come to me first, and I'll ok them.


We'd love to hear from you, your questions, comments, observations! Please feel free to comment, feedback is important to us.
