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 ...
Habitat
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.

Congratulations! I'm surprised and disappointed I didn't see any on my California trip. Merlin kept telling me I was hearing them, but they stayed hidden.
