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.
