The bird in flight is the one in question. Seems to have yellow parts underneath, and a reddish head...? I realize this is not a great picture, but any help is appreciated!

Thanks!

Pine Siskin for me too; I think the pink on the head must be a photo artifact.

Those yellow wing-patches say Siskin to me, too.

Thanks, everyone. There was a big flock of siskins in the area. I accidentally got this picture while trying to snap the Western Wood Pewee (which is sitting behind a branch in the lower left of this photo), but caught this guy instead. :)
