I saw some other reports today from Ottawa and Cambridge of these birds, 
so thought our observations might be interesting as well.  Saw many small 
flocks of all of these birds moving around Bronte Creek Provincial Park in 
Oakville/Burlington this morning.  They were flying back and forth from 
the edge of Lake Ontario into the southern side of the Park.  We first 
started seeing them in Parking Lot F near the Spruce Line Heritage Farm 

They clearly wanted to keep moving and were quite talkative (both the 
Crossbills and Siskins have distinctive calls in flight and when 
agitated).  Flocks ranged in size from just a few birds to many dozen at 
once, but were always in single species flocks (at least the best we could 
see).  Also had many Yellow-rumped Warblers, various sparrow species, and 
all local woodpeckers including Pileated and Red-bellied. 

Bronte Creek Provincial Park is just off of Burloak Road north of Highway 
403/QEW between Oakville and Burlington.
