As of 1:50 p.m. today, 2 Pine Siskins alit on my feeders--one on  
thistle/niger/nyjer (the second word is because the seed comes from  
Niger and nearby in Africa and is not the same as the thistle [the  
original name] that has a bad reputation in the U.S., and the third  
word is a made-up ridiculous effort to be politically correct for  
people too ignorant to pronounce the second word correctly)--and the  
second bird on black oil sunflower seeds (still in shells).

So, I am now in the "Have" column. HA!  This is a lot more fun than  
being in the "Have not" column, and, Susan, et al., I didn't even  
have to buy a new feeder!

Peter's post on Red Crossbills at Thousand Hills SP is great news.   
Go see 'em!  And...hold them there for a couple of weeks, please, so  
I can have a look-see, too.

And, those of you who are still siskinless, maybe if you were a  
better person?  or...  hang in there.

Bodacious birding to y'all,
