    Assuming your flock is not the same as my flock, there must be quite a lot of Pine Siskins enjoying feeders in the hills.  I also have around fifty today.  Just one individual on 10/10, then 2-3 on the 18th, 23-24, and a mob today.  Also eating and drinking a lot.  The low humidity might account for the heavy drinking; but these birds don't look like they're starving.  Very long migration? from where?

HI All,

Today, Oct 25, I have a nice flock of over 50 Pine Siskins that showed up at my feeders.  Hope they stay all winter as they did last year.  They sure are eating a great amount of seed and drinking water often.
