My little garden buddy today.

Pine Siskins have settled in to my feeders this past week. I stopped putting out oil seed in an effort to keep out the house sparrows and BAM! In came the Pine Siskins, nuthatches, chickadees and Evening Grosbeaks. It's been really fun. The Pine Siskins will let me get really close to them...they don't seem fearful at all.

1. I like your little garden buddy!

What kind of bird seed did you use to attract the Pine Siskins? Your picture would look good framed.

3. I put sunflower seed chips

in the feeder in the photo and nyjer thistle in the feeder next to it. I'll get an occasional house sparrow now but for the most part, they have moved on.
