Friday Bird Blogging: The Pine Siskin
I'm particularly pleased with this picture because the Pine Siskin was one of my "target" birds. When I saw how similar they look to juvenile house and purple finches, I realized that it would have been easy for one to appear on the feeders without my even noticing it. So I started keeping an eye out and, as luck would have it, I spotted one totally at random. It let me get close enough to get this gorgeous shot of a bird that, weeks earlier, I could easily have confused with another bird entirely.
