Pine Siskins, Ewing, Jan 27th

This morning there were (at last!) two Pine Siskins at my yard feeders, making me not quite the last feeders in NJ to get a visit from these irruptives. Also new for the feeders was a Northern Flicker, making rapid headway through the suet block that had only just been discovered by the pair of Carolina Wrens that have been overwintering. Things are going to get busy with this afternoon's scheduled snowfall.

(Update: Siskins returned on the 29th, briefly, and there was a fly-over winter finch flock on the 30th).
