Bird Photography Weekly - Pine Siskin

Like a goldfinch in camouflage. Despite its color pattern, the siskin acts like goldfinches and often flocks with them in winter. (Kaufman Field Guide to Birds of North America)
These siskins, captured at our feeder in northern Wisconsin, show off their yellow coloring in the wings and tail. Photo credit on the siskins goes to teenage son again this week.

  1. Hey Tammy, tell your son I said he got some nice captures of those Pine Siskins! Nice to see their wing pattern with those photos.

  2. I love Pine Siskins. For a long time, before I started checking things out in my field guide, I would call Siskins juvenile goldfinches, just because they do tend to flock together so much. I'm glad I know better now. :)
