I am being visited by Pine Siskins for the first time in many years. They are the only birds besides goldfinches that are able to hang upside down on my Niger seed feeder. As many as six Northern Cardinals at a time were visiting my sunflower feeder in early January, but they must be pairing off judging by recent visits of only two.

Location: Rogers Street, Peterborough
