    The amount of yellow in the wings varies individually and cannot be used to reliably sex these siskins. Juveniles resemble adults but have buffy wing-bars. This is a rather nomadic species, and California seems to be currently experiencing a modest invasion of these birds. There are three...

    Pine Siskin caught at sundown. Although it is patterned like a sparrow, its shape, actions, and callnotes all reveal that this bird is really a goldfinch in disguise.

    Pine Siskin Pine siskins live in coniferous or coniferous-deciduous habitats because they eat the seeds of coniferous trees and rely on the year-round protections of these trees and shrubs. During the breeding season, siskins move to the outer edges of coniferous forests (which both are my...

    Pine Siskin I don't usually see them come the end of March. I'm not complaining though :) Pine Siskins are very small songbirds with sharp, pointed bills and short, notched tails. Their uniquely shaped bill is more slender than that of most finches. In flight, look for their forked tails and...

    I had clearer more focused pictures but this one is on a tree which means something to me for laughing out loud. Hope everyone is having a great day. Heard a saying the other day I want to share. I love you but how can you love me if you don't know me? If you can hate me and not know me then...

    Today has been a very productive day. I got to experience something new for a change. So to say I'm happy is an understatement I get so excited and maybe you do too. I used to get these confused with the House Finches but these have a sharper bill.

    For me anyway ;) This nomadic finch ranges widely and erratically across the continent each winter in response to seed crops. Better suited to clinging to branch tips than to hopping along the ground, these brown-streaked acrobats flash yellow wing markings as they flutter while feeding or as...

    It's an irruption year, and feeders throughout Maryland are seeing Pine Siskins often this season. This guy is at my local park.

    Went to Milton Reimer Ranch Park near Dripping Springs, TX today to look at interesting flora and fauna and got some OK pictures of these pine sisken (the scientific name hits a funny bone, spinus pinus). Couldn't help but thinking that the park's namesake was probably a rancher, but with a name...
