Against the Cold

This pretty little Pine Siskin (Spinus pinus) is sitting on a shephards hook in our garden. It’s all puffed up against the cold. Letting those feathers do there job, keeping it warm!

Here it is. The first camera packing birdie. Trying for a good shot! In actual fact, a Dark-eyed Junco landing on the saucer feeder while the Pine Siskin throws up it’s wings in protest of the visitor.


Mine, Mine!

The Pine Siskins (Spinus pinus) are enjoying our two tray feeders with Niger seed in them. They pack onto the edges. Inveriably as with Finches there is lots of chattering and the odd you show me yours and I’ll show you mine!

Here’s another LBJ (little brown job) all puffed up against the cold wet weather. ┬áThis time a Pine Siskin, looks quite displeased with the whole issue. ┬áNever mind, it’s getting warmer later this week!


Pine Siskins


Yesterdays post was wrong. It was actually a female House Finch. My mistake. These lot are Pine Siskins. There’s even a Goldfinch in the lot as well. The Siskins show quite a display of yellow while flying and if another one gets to close to them they flash yellow at each other. Like saying “I’m eating here!”
