Pine Siskins Love my Thistle Feeder!

Pine Siskins have been frequenting my new Droll Yankee Thistle Feeder, coming in third place behind Dark-Eyed Juncos and American Goldfinches. You've already seen pictures of the fat junco feasting at the thistle feeder (sitting there for hours!), and I'll be posting pictures of the goldfinches next.

I took these ones today when I went over to the feeder to put some treats on the ground. I was surprised this one didn't move so I took advantage of its good-naturedness and took some pictures from below.

This one's from my Tuesday/Wednesday morning Project FeederWatch counting. It's pretty cold in the mornings, so this was taken from the warmth of the enclosed porch.
