    A common visitor to the lake near my apartment and I finally managed to take a photo of one that I actually quite like! :-)

    Siskins have an unusual migratory pattern, heading South in large numbers every few winters but remaining in others. I didn't know this and had been wondering where they'd all got to the last two years, but this year they came back with a vengeance in huge flocks, which delighted me...

  17. Back in Sept ...

    Back in Sept ...

    ... there were also loads of Siskins about. I suppose that was because there were so many thistles and other Siskin favorites in seed. Now I haven't seen any for a good while. I hope it's just that they've found a food source up in the woods somewhere. Perhaps we'll see them at the feeders later...
  18. Calm


    Trying to just breathe deeply and calm down. Some good news just ticked in on the election night programs, and I was able to calm down a bit. Maybe looking at this Siskin also helped a bit. Browsing BF would probably also help. I'll do that a bit through the night.

    A big flock of Siskins and sparrows (both house and tree) was feasting on thistle seeds in a fallow field beside the trail. It was tricky getting close without disturbing them, but I did get a few good shots when they perched out at the edges of the field. I think this was the best of them.
