12/31/08 - first two Pine Siskins visit one of our thistle feeders
01/02.09 - first good size flock of 80 +/- come through
01/12/09 - twenty five very consistent Siskins daily
   occasional larger flocks (high count 110 birds) come & go all winter
05/02/09 - twenty one of the twenty five regulars move on
05/03/09 - two pair daily
05/05/09 - assumption of possible nesting - started thistle on  
platform feeder
05/16/09 - believe only one pair still around
05/23/09 - one fledged Siskin on platform feeder
05/30/09 - last sighting of an adult bird (male), juvenile seen  
06/14/09 - last sighting of the single juvenile Siskin (female)
  All that fun with only 180 pounds of thistle.
