Pine Siskins return to St. Croix River Valley

Winter came back yesterday!  Along with snow flurries, temps in the teens and blustery winds, the new years first flock of adorable Pine Siskins have arrived.  Hungry and thirsty, they attacked the nyjer thistle socks and lined up along the rim of the heated bird baths.  Such sweet, animated, friendly little fliers!   Its always a treat to play cold-weather host to these charming birds.  Now, all we need is some serious snow and it will really seem like winter.
