The Wilson’s warblers have stuck around for quite a while. And, atop a bush on the other side of the house, we saw what we believe to be a Dickcissel, which would put it at the extreme western edge of its range. But no photo!

A flock of 30 or more Pine siskins are now congregating on and around our new nyjer seed socks, while only occasionally going to the plastic feeder. The socks have also brought three or so Lesser goldfinches around more often.

Canyon towhees are around all year, but in lesser numbers nowadays than before. Stay tuned, as I will update this post as more birds show up, and I get pix of them
