Are you sure they are Pine Siskins coming to a suet
feeder? I have had pine siskins for three different
years and have never seen them come to suet. They are
constantly on my thistle and sunflower hearts feeder.
I have yellow-rumped warblers on the suet that look
like siskins. Please let me know if they are
definitely siskins and not the yellow-rumps as this is
new info for me. People tell me all the time that
cardinals go to their suet, and I have never had a
cardinal eat mine in nine years of feeding!! So
anything is possible in the world of birdfeeding!
