Pine Siskin? Eastern Ontario, Canada

Photographed this morning in eastern Ontario, Canada, I think this is a Pine Siskin. Could someone confirm or correct that? If so, it's a lifer for me.

Pine Siskin indeed. Seems to be a big year for them in Ontario. I have about 40 on my feeders right now! Most years we just get 5-6 visit for a few weeks each spring.

Congrats on the lifer! They are a cool little bird.
