|It may be a little early, but I went searching for Redpoll and Siskin last week. |
When they do arrive in the Parkland they can usually be found high up in some of their favourite Birch trees searching for food. There are some really tall Birches that I always check when searching for them.
Unfortunately I didn't find any target birds, but they had better hurry up arriving as the resident Goldfinch and Bullfinch were already in attendance eating the seeds from the little Birch cones.
It is quite a precarious activity for these birds as they are clinging on high in the trees and the wind was blowing fairly hard as well. Not an easy task getting small seeds from an equally small cone.
