First Pine Siskin of the Fall

A brightly colored Pine Siskin showed up at our feeders today. First one I've seen here this fall!


There's been an irruption of redpolls and siskins in Alaska, and a Common Redpoll has been reported here in the Twin Cities metro area. Looks like it might be a great year for winter finches!

  2. So pretty! I only saw a few in my area last year. I've never seen a redpoll. Not sure if we have those
