Boulder Junction, Wisconsin
There was a small jack pine grove next to an antique store with many feeders. The Pine Siskins were eating sunflower seeds on a feeder hanging off the eaves of the building. This was the same place where I had seen my lifer Evening Grosbeak, Rose-breasted Grosbeak, and American Goldfinch earlier in the year. The Evening Grosbeaks and American Goldfinches were still around.
