Comments:
Pine Siskin - The most common of the irruptive "winter finches," the Pine Siskin often remains on the wintering grounds long enough to breed. Small finch. Brown and heavily streaked, paler underneath. Two buff wingbars, yellow in wing at base of flight feathers. Breeds in open coniferous forests. Also in parks, cemeteries, and in mixed coniferous-deciduous tree associations. Prefers conifers in migration and winter. Was at my feeders with the Goldfinches and Juncos.
