Back in town (Spinus pinus)

Pine Siskins always put a smile on my face.
Pine siskins are brown and very streaky birds with subtle yellow edgings on wings and tails. Flashes of yellow can erupt as they take flight, flutter at branch ...
Pine Siskins are typically found in abundance across Canada, and to a lesser extent in the U.S., in northern states and higher elevations of the west and northeast, as well as parts of Mexico.

I had an unusual visit from a couple of our Siskins a few weeks ago! I sometimes get them in the winter... never seen them at this time of year before.

A fabulous image KC - well done and thanks my friend.
