We have an abundance of pine siskins this year, and I am fascinated by their behavior.  They are the first to visit this feeder in the mornings and the last to leave each afternoon, territorial and competitive to the very end.  There’s lots of posturing, lunging, spreading and flapping of wings as their battles cause them to spiral several feet into the air.  For such tiny birds, they can certainly hold their own.
