Between the pine siskins and goldfinches, we are going through seed like
crazy. Can't seem to keep up!
On a fun note. who was it that had a siskin land on his head? Well,
yesterday my husband & I were standing out on the deck chatting with a
neighbor and siskins were landing all around us. Just inches from our feet,
drinking from a water bowl, landing very close, not caring if we were there
or not, and yes, one landed on my husband's head. He stood there with a
silly grin on his face and enjoyed the moment while my neighbor and I were
completely dumbfounded (the dumbfounded part is pretty normal for me). They
sure are friendly feathered friends! And also quite pretty, I might add.
