Observer: Deb Radovsky

Observation Date: 12/15/18

Observation Time: morning

Observation Location: Moose Hill Audubon Wildlife Sanctuary (near feeders)

Common Name: Pine Siskin

Scientific Name: Spinus pinus

Comments: Every couple of years, Pine Siskins make unpredictable movements called irruptions into southern and eastern North America. Though they’re erratic, these movements may not be entirely random. Banding data suggest that some birds may fly west-east across the continent while others move north-south.
