We're swamped with Pine Siskins here in the Belle Sherman area in Ithaca. We 
had two about a week ago, and the number has grown since. At least 15 clustered 
at the base of our seed feeder yesterday and this morning, while another 6 eat 
at the perches. They are nearly impossible to count while on the ground. They 
pack so tightly together while feeding it looks a bit like a rugby scrum.
