Small flock of Pine Siskins keeping company with Goldfinches in Brome Lake area SE of 
Montreal.   Apparently this is an 'irruption year' for this species, with many more sightings at 
winter feeders 2008-2009.   Apparently they breed communally, accounting for the flock status 
even during the nesting season.    Salmonella eye infections thought not to be a problem this 
year.
