Barkhamsted yard - With the majority of our 80+ Winter siskins gone, the remainders (~15) dwindle to about 6 around 7pm (some still visit the feeder).
I'm listening to their calls at 7pm and there are occasional snippets of redpoll/red crossbill harsh "chets" and an interesting upward, repeated call (10x or so) sounding very close to a Sora! I've heard the former but not the latter.
Maybe my shelled sunflower will keep at least a pair around to breed this year. However with daily bear visits it's not likely I'll keep them up.
