I saw one female Purple Finch briefly dining at the sunflower
feeder at the Dr.F.R.Crouch Nature Sanctuary, Farmington,
MO. on Jan 8, '03. That is the only Purple Finch I have seen
all fall/winter in southeast MO.
I have seen zero Pine Siskins this year. Last winter, it was not
uncommon to count 100+ Pine Siskins at my feeders at home.
American Goldfinch numbers are low this winter. The most
I have seen at my feeders at home is 6. The feeding station at
the Dr.F.R.Crouch Nature Sanctuary produced a whopping
7 American Goldfinches last week. Last winter, groups of 30-
40 American Goldfinches were common around Farmington.
House Finch numbers are way down this winter around Farm-
ington, also.
