Smile siskin

Hi everyone, this is my first post......
I just wanted to say that over the Easter weekend I had a male & female siskin on my birdfeeder. Was really excited as I'd never seen one before. Unfortunately,
must have been passing through as I haven't seen them since.

Hi Suzie - welcome to the Forum. We had lots of siskins on the niger feeers until recently (72 was the maximum), but now most of them have moved off and the goldfinches get a chance to feed again!

Hi Suzie and a warm welcome to you from the staff here at Bird Forum.

I remember the very first time I had siskins land on my feeder only not to see them for a few weeks after that. Then Bam! All of a sudden I had a deluge, so keep your fingers crossed and your eyes opened and let us know what else arrives.
