[Tweeters] Pine Siskins dying

I’ve found 3 dead Pine Siskins in my yard in the last 2 - 3 weeks! My feeders are very clean. Has anyone seen the same thing? I’ve been feeding birds in the backyard for more than 25 years and have not seen this before. Last year I watched a male Anna become distressed and subsequently die.
I’ve had a few window hits before but no deaths. These birds seem to die a slow death. I watch them stay close to the ground and struggle with flying. The healthy Siskins never feed on the ground so I am always suspicious when I see this behavior.
Any ideas?
