A few of our Pine Siskins...

especially for Vagabonde...
Click on the pics to enlarge, and see the detail of each better..

I guess the most distinguishing mark is the yellow on the wings...

kind of sets them apart from the other similar marked birds...


  1. I see the spot of yellow on one of the birds - and they kind of look like tigers with those stripes on their wings. Thanks for the photo it is very nice and informative.

  2. Aren't these little birds fun? They're such a sassy, territorial little bird.

  3. You are very welcome, and they are a welcome sight this time of year in my yard for sure !!

  4. Beautiful photos! These guys are rare here so it's a treat to get to see them.
