We still had a smaller flock of around 30 Siskins a few days ago, but are now
down to just individuals. Is anyone else still seeing large flocks?

As most of you know, this is a major irruption winter for Pine Siskins,
with the consequent outbreak of Salmonellosis, and there have been some
articles in newspapers that have caught people's attention. I am getting quite
a few people asking whether they should take down their feeders and if so,
when can they put them back up. So this is a request to keep track of Pine
Siskin sightings and report here when you think you've seen the last of them!
It's always harder to pin down the date of departure than arrival. Those of
you making regular eBird entries will have an easier time of it. If you're not
doing that, this is a request to just keep track of each day when you see Pine
Siskins, and if a week goes by without a sighting, let me know.
Thanks, keep your feeders clean and wash your hands!
