I would appreciate it, if you could ad your sightings to this list...
I have observed PINE SISKIN over the years eating the following:
White Birch "
Yellow Birch "
Swamp Alder "
New England Aster
Dandelion - a pair nested here one year, and I observed them feeding from this
plant in the spring.
Goldenrod - Saw these birds this year exploring within this plant, but did not
what they were eating. Seeds or insects?
Evening Primrose -?
Small cones seem to be the only cones Ive seen them eating from.
Have seen Siskin eating-gleaning- seeds from trees on the snow surface.
Mostly Birch seeds. Thanks...
